Did anyone hear this?

My husband told me over the weekend that he heard that Interpol's bassist just quit the band. Seems as if it is true, so do you think it will have any effect on them being an opening act for U2?

The article mentions them opening for U2 in Europe in September, but doesn't mention the US/Canada shows they are to open.

 

Hmmmmmmmm...

Here in LA this was reported by KROQ (rock radio) last week. According to their website (The band's) they will use different bass players for the summers tour.

 

So it looks like they will go on, as of now....yet to lose a member you never know...

Ahhh, thanks for the 411.  We'll just wait and see how it all pans out then in the end.  Hopefully they'll find some good ones to step in and play those dates then as planned & reported.

This is from MTV:

 

The iconic coif. The Italian greyhound named after a depraved Roman emperor. The finely tailored suits and empty gun holsters. The mustache that made him look like Kevin Kline. They're all gone now.

 

On Sunday, Interpol announced they had parted ways with bassist/fashionplate Carlos D, the man who had played with the band since its early NYU days, and who, thanks to his darkly dapper dress and various eccentricities, had become a fan favorite, not to mention a style icon.

 

In a statement posted on their official site (which, at press time, was down), the band said that Carlos D (real last name: Dengler) had left the group following the completion of their fourth album, because "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," the statement reads. "We remain, as always, deeply respectful fans of this blazingly talented individual."

 

In recent years, Dengler had branched out into composing music for film and commercials. Some of his work can be heard over on his site, CarlosDengler.com.

 

Interpol did not announce a replacement for Dengler, but said they have lined up "some very exciting new recruits" to join them on their upcoming tour, which sees them opening for U2.

 

In the statement, the band also wrote that they have completed work on their still-untitled new album — recorded at Electric Lady Studios in New York — and that it's a "heavy record." Recently, the band unveiled "Lights," the first song off the album, which is due later this year. MTV News' requests for comment from the band's reps have not been returned at press time.

 

 

According to this report, looks like they would be opening....
