Interpol's Paul Banks Readying Solo Effort Under Moniker Julian Plenti

Interpol's lead singer Paul Banks has announced a new solo effort, entitled Skyskraper to be released via Matador Records on August 4th. His new project is being released under the moniker Julian Plenti, a name Banks has been using for several years now.

According to Billboard, while the album was recorded recently, some of the songs were written more than ten years ago. The album is described as having a "cocky, sexy" feel, with tracks that sound similar to Interpol, as well as some straight-ahead guitar rock songs.
