Interpol bassist CARLOS DENGLER has quit the band shortly after completing work on their latest album.
The group recently finished their currently-untitled fourth record, which is due to hit stores this year (10), but the rockers have revealed Dengler left Interpol soon after they wrapped up their work in the studio.
A post on the group's official website reads, "After the completion of the album, Carlos informed the rest of us that he would be leaving the band. He has decided to follow another path, and to pursue new goals. This separation is amicable, and we whole-heartedly wish him great happiness and success. We will remain, as always, deeply respectful fans of this blazingly talented individual.
"We can tell you that we have some very exciting new recruits joining us on the road. So stay tuned - we will promptly be revealing the identities of these illustrious players."
