Tears stain the plaid shirts of a thousand indie purists

Alt. rock guitar hero chappy and former Slint man Dave Pajo is being measured up for a Luger holster as we speak as, yep, he's been unveiled as Interpol's new guitarist and replacement for the departed Carlos D.

On a post on the Interpol website, the band said "We'd like to take a moment to introduce you to our new editions: Two fresh faces who will be joining us live on our upcoming tours. On Bass: Dave Pajo Pajo has a vast body of work. He was the guitarist for Slint. He has recorded as Papa M and Ariel M. And he has worked with Tortoise, Will Oldham, Zwan, and numerous other artists. So, you know.... do the math."

They also revealed that Brandon Curtis of Secret Machines will be joining the band on keyboards. Interpol's new album will be released this September.
