Interpol have announced their new EP A Fine Mess, will drop on May 17th via Matador Records. Along with the news, the band have shared the second single off the album “The Weekend.” The song follows lead-track “Fine Mess. A Fine Mess was Recorded with Dave Fridmann (The Flaming Lips, MGMT, Haim). “Fine Mess” received further production from Kaines & Tom A.D. and mixing from Claudius Mittendorfer, who had first worked with Interpol as engineer on Our Love To Admire. Interpol are presently playing another run of dates, including stops in Buenos Aires, for Lollapalooza, London, UK, and Paris.

The artwork for A Fine Mess is illustrated by a series of lost images, recovered from an abandoned police station in Detroit, MI. In a crumbling evidence room – amongst the rubble – an undeveloped roll of film, dated “1-20-96”, featured latent images of a breaking and entering scene, the rooms in chaos.
