Interpol Share The Rover Video

Wednesday, 11 July 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Interpol have shared a video for The Rover.

The track is cut from their new album, 'Marauder', which is due to arrive on August 24 via Matador Records and is the follow up to 2014's 'El Pintor'.

The video, meanwhile, was conceived by the band's Paul Banks, directed by Gerardo Naranjo and stars actor Ebon Moss-Bachrach, of The Punisher and Girls television series.

In a statement, Banks said:

“I like to describe the video for "The Rover" as a prequel. It’s the origin story of the character described in the song, the birth of a cult leader. When we meet him he is partly unhinged. He’s a man on the verge, an artist subjected to great pressures, and beset with existential frustrations. A distracted hipster who enjoys psychedelics, let’s say.
The events that take place in Mexico City, be it a bump on the head, a visit to a shaman, or the influence of his rescuers (the street gang known as “Los Locos”) trigger the birth - the eruption -  of this new figure, “the rover.” His rescuers become his first followers. 
In the end of the video he exacts his “revenge” on Interpol with a mischievous act of disruption during the press conference. He grabs me by the head - to save me? Forgive me? Or simply as a gesture of his new independence - the butterfly becoming.”

Interpol - Marauder (Album Review)
Tue 04 Sep 2018
Photo: Jamie-James Medina Having dispensed with the anagrams following the release of the excellent ‘El Pintor’ four years ago, Interpol’s sixth album ‘Marauder’ is the subject of a production shift. Not since 2007’s ‘Our Love To Admire’ have they employed an outside producer, so it’s somewhat surprising to find Dave Fridmann (Mercury Rev, the Flaming Lips) at the helm here.

Imagination Is Key: How The Sheepdogs Are Keeping Rock 'N' Roll Colourful
Wed 31 Oct 2018
It’s virtually impossible to do anything completely new in the realm of rock'n'roll, especially when some of the greatest acts of all time have already pioneered, innovated and explored the genre to its very limits and beyond. Does that mean like-minded young bands should just lazily imitate their predecessors or even give up? Hell, no. They need to follow the example set by the Sheepdogs, write the best songs possible and spice them up with as many stylistic and instrumental flavours as their talents will allow.
Super Furry Animals To Release Yeti Fur Filled Box Set Version Of BBC Sessions Compilation

Swearin' - Fall Into The Sun (Album Review)
Thu 01 Nov 2018
Space can be good, whether it’s allowing us to take a break from people or helping intrigue to blossom in the moments left unfilled in a piece of music. Left to our own devices, we are able to take stock, gain perspective and ultimately grow. It feels like Swearin’, who split in 2015 when guitarists and vocalists Allison Crutchfield and Kyle Gilbride ended their romantic and musical relationship, would back that sentiment.

Perhaps you remember when Sting was cool instead, then? But once the Police went the same way as Stewart’s mob, their frontman launched a similarly disappointing solo career.
