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.”
