Interpol have said that their former bassist Carlos Dengler had his “foot out the door” even when they were working on their 2007 album, ‘Our Love To Admire’.
Dengler left the band earlier this year after completing work on the band’s self-titled fourth album.
Drummer Sam Fogarino told NME that the move wasn’t a bolt from the blue. “Carlos had his foot out the door a long time ago,” he explained. “Even on the last record.”
He added: “His conflict rested in the fact that he enjoyed writing and recording music with the band. It’s doing interviews and the travelling roadshow that he didn’t want.”
‘Interpol’ is out on September 13.
