Interpol Replace Dave Pajo With Brad Truax

March 1, 2011 (9:08 am) GMT
Pajo decided to leave the band to spend more time with his family and the remaining members of the group claim they are still friends.

Rocker Dave Pajo has quit less than a year after replacing bassist Carlos Dengler. Dengler parted ways with the band in May 2010 after the completion of its self-titled fourth record and Pajo subsequently joined the line-up.

However, he's decided to leave the group to spend more time with his family - and his bandmembers are fully supportive of his decision. The remaining members - Paul Banks, Dan Kessler and Sam Fogarino - say in a statement, "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."

Pajo has been replaced by Brad Truax, who has previously played with Home and Jah Division.
