If you don’t want to feel the feels then don’t even pick up the album.

2. They’re the best dressed dudes in rock.

Except for their 2007 Our Love to Admire album, Interpol’s all black, white, and red all over.

5. They’re definitely not too macho to talk about love.

And just how god damn sad it can be.

Carlos Dengler, Interpol’s bassist, left the band in 2010. Since then, the band’s done just fine and Banks is picking up bass duties on the new album.

7. They’re a dark band, but in the best way possible.

If the title of their new album El Pintor (also an anagram for Interpol) wasn’t indication enough, lead singer Paul Banks is fluent in Spanish and often sings in Spanish live.

9. Does anybody rock out on guitar like Daniel Kessler?

Isn’t that so romantic?

Carlos, what were you even talking about?

13. Seriously, these dudes are just a couple of goofs.

Ugh, Paul, stop being so embarrassing.

And now, we wait for El Pintor.
