Interpol Hurting For Bassist

Dave Pajo, the recent replacement for Carlos  D on bass for New York’s finest gloomy indie rock band Interpol has decided to leave according to Pitchfork. There were two statements released, as usual, one from Pajo and one from the actual band.

Pajo’s statement reads something along the lines of this: “I’ll be taking a break from touring to focus on family. There are no personal, artistic or health reasons– it’s really as simple as that!” It sounds as if Pajo is not only taking a break from Interpol but also touring in general, as he later goes on to say that “I will continue to record and perform music, with bands as well as solo, I just won’t be touring as much.”

While that may be the case touring does take it’s toll on band members, why do you think Radiohead hasn’t toured in a while. Derr they don’t have to ‘cuz they are Radiohead. Once a band reaches a high status like that they don’t have to. Pajo, you are not a celebrity in a high class well known band like Radiohead you can’t do this kind of stuff. But what did the band say in their release?

“He’s going to be missed to be sure… Aside from being an exceptional musician, Pajo is a wonderful person to be around.” The band has already found a replacement for the bassist and will continue to tour this summer. Interpol’s latest album is the self titled released last year.
