Following the news that Future Of The Left’s bassist Kelson Mathias has jumped ship, Interpol’s Carlos D has announced he is leaving Interpol.

Writing on the official Interpol website, the band said ‘After the completion of the album, Carlos informed the rest of us that he would be leaving the band.’

‘He has decided to follow another path, and to pursue new goals. This separation is amicable, and we whole-heartedly wish him great happiness and success.’

‘We will remain, as always, deeply respectful fans of this blazingly talented individual.’

The band went on to suggest that instead of finding a full-time replacement for Carlos D, they will use several different musicians ‘We can tell you that we have some very exciting new recruits joining us on the road. So stay tuned – we will promptly be revealing the identities of these illustrious players.’

There is some good news, the band have finished their fourth album. For more info go to
