Interpol

Suits and surfing may seem like an odd paring, but Interpol makes it work in its music video for new single "All the Rage Back Home."

In the video, footage is split between the band thundering through "All the Rage" in a darkened space and images of surfers challenging some massive waves. In typical Interpol fashion, both sides are shown entirely in black and white.

The track comes the band's forthcoming fifth studio album "El Pintor," which, in case you hadn't noticed, is an anagram of "Interpol." It drops Sept. 9 via Matador.

The music video serves as the first sampling of a studio cut from the new album, after Interpol shared "All the Rage Back Home" at shows like last month's Governors Ball, where they also performed new cuts "My Desire" and "Anywhere." After a very Interpol intro of airy, intertwining guitars, the song dives into a charging, straight-ahead chorus, making it a sound choice for a lead single.

The video was co-directed by Interpol frontman Paul Banks and Sophia Peer, who has previously worked videos for the National, Paramore and Banks' solo work.
