Matador Records will release the 2nd solo album from Interpol vocalist/guitarist Paul Banks on October 23. On the album titled ‘Banks’ (available on LP/CD/digital), Banks loses the Julian Plenti alter-ego, and delivers a new 10-song album.

Listen to the first track, The Base below which is upbeat with a strong drum track and upfront vocals like what you know from Interpol. If this track is what we can expect from ‘Banks’, it is sure to be an epic album.
