Sound will be more similar to Turn On The Bright Lights

Interpol are planning on releasing a new album in early 2010.

Drummer Sam Fogarino told Paste Magazine that the album - which will be the follow-up to 2007's Our Love To Admire - will mark a return to the sound of their first record, Turn On The Bright Lights.

"The new record falls back towards the first," he said. "In trying to move forward, there was an unspoken realization that you can’t let go of your sonic-defining tag.

"There was an effort in Daniel [Kessler]'s guitar tone; he rediscovered it playing in his loft space for a year without anybody.

"The quality of that tone, played in a big room, is just beautiful. It creates an atmosphere."

Fogarino also suggested that the band weren't entirely satisfied with Our Love To Admire, revealing: "[The album] was not our most cohesive moment… It was when reality kicked in as to where we were and where we were never going back to."

The as-yet-untitled record will be Interpol's fourth studio album.
