Paul Banks | "The Base" + Full Album Announcement

A few months back, Paul Banks of Interpol released the Julian Plenti Lives... EP, but at the same time also gave word of a new album to come later in the fall. Today we finally got news of when. The forthcoming 2nd solo album entitled Banks will drop on October 23rd via Matador (pre-order it here). This time however, Banks ditches the Julian Plenti moniker and just goes with his real name. Take a listen to the first single ("The Base") to surface down below. I like it so far, hopefully you feel the same.

The album is personal and epic, catchy and serpentine – much like your favorite Interpol albums – with Paul’s wry humor, bare emotion, and varied influences all in full effect. It's a tour-de-force of exhilarating minor-key intensity. [via]
