Interpol Switch Bassist Again

2011-02-28 by Davey Boy STAFF | 8 Comments
Following the departure of Interpol's popular bass player Carlos Dengler last year, his replacement Dave Pajo has now also left the band amicably.

Pajo has been replaced by Brad Truax, who has played with various acts, including Animal Collective.

In an official statement, the band state that Pajo "is a wonderful person to be around. He’s sharp as a tack and funny as all get-out..." On Truax, the band state "Brad is the man. His musical resume includes work with a horde of awesome bands.... He’s got taste and he’s got chops. And that’s what we want".

Pajo's official statement reads: "I would like to announce that I will no longer be performing live with Interpol on their upcoming campaign. 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! I would like to thank Paul, Daniel, Sam, Brandon, everyone in the crew, and all of the Interpol fans for the remarkable support and patronage they have shown me during my time with them. I feel a tremendous amount of love and respect for everyone involved and will genuinely miss them.

I will continue to record and perform music, with bands as well as solo, I just won’t be touring as much. I am truly grateful for the experience and look forward to enjoying Interpol in the future, as a fan and friend. Walk in light, walk in darkness".
