Interpol recently announced that they'll be releasing a new album called Marauder on August 24th. Along with that announcement was the rejuvenated single 'The Rover', for which they have now released an amazing video.

Created by, Gerardo Naranjo (Narcos, The Bridge), the video was shot on-location in Mexico City. Paul Banks introduces the short film and its central character:

“I like to describe the video for "The Rover" as a prequel. It’s the origin story of the character described in the song, the birth of a cult leader. When we meet him he is partly unhinged. He’s a man on the verge, an artist subjected to great pressures, and beset with existential frustrations. A distracted hipster who enjoys psychedelics, let’s say.

The events that take place in Mexico City, be it a bump on the head, a visit to a shaman, or the influence of his rescuers (the street gang known as “Los Locos”) trigger the birth - the eruption - of this new figure, “the rover.” His rescuers become his first followers.

In the end of the video he exacts his “revenge” on Interpol with a mischievous act of disruption during the press conference. He grabs me by the head - to save me? Forgive me? Or simply as a gesture of his new independence - the butterfly becoming.”

Watch 'The Rover' below.
