Interpol Bassist Dave Pajo has left Interpol to spend more time with his family.
The announcement was made on the bands official website interpolnyc.com stating that:
“Dave Pajo is tagging out, folks.
Dave has decided to step out of the spotlight for a spell, and will no longer be touring with Interpol.
We’re all friends. It’s just an Out-of-the-hotel, Into-the-home sorta thing.
He’s going to be missed to be sure. Aside from being an exceptional musician, Pajo is a wonderful person to be around.”
He’ll be replaced with Brad Truax, who is the second bassist since popular band member Carlos Dengler (or Carlos D as was known at his peak) quit the band in 2010 after recording Interpol’s latest self-titled album.
