Paul Banks and his bandmates have been hard at work on their new music, working remotely during coronavirus lockdown and now reuniting in studio after the restrictions ease.

AceShowbiz - Cult indie-rockers Interpol have been working remotely on new music for the past year.

The group took to Instagram to tease plans for the future, revealing they're one year into recording and, as Covid restrictions ease, have united in the studio to develop tracks in person.

Alongside a shot of the band on stage, they explained that due to the coronavirus pandemic, "we had to use the internet to circulate ideas and collaborate remotely. This was a new experience for us."

"Fortunately, in recent months, we've had the opportunity to get together in person and continue to develop those ideas the old-fashion way: loud and in the flesh."

"We recently completed our second round of in-person writing, this time in a house in the Catskills," they continued, adding that coronavirus restrictions "have informed our music positively, we feel. We took it as a chance to grow and made the best of it."

"Hopefully this work shows that when one is forced to find new ways to meet familiar challenges the results can be unexpected and beautiful."

And while it will be "a little while" until they release new tracks, the group, who released their last studio album Marauder in 2018, insisted, "It's gonna be magical to play live and be together with our fans again! Fully epic."

Paul Banks and his bandmates last released their studio album "Marauder" in 2018. The following year, they followed it up with a mini album "A Fine Mess" that contained leftover tracks from "Marauder" session.
