Interpol's vocalist Paul Banks has clarified his comments made about Morrissey's political views last month.
Morrissey has received a lot of backlash after solidifying his support towards For Britain in interviews and performances over the past few months. Spillers Records in Cardiff stopped selling his music, and Merseyrail took down posters advertising his most recent album, and musicians such as Billy Bragg and Nick Cave also offered their opinions on Morrissey's politics.
A couple of weeks ago, Paul Banks of Interpol spoke to Hot Press, and shared a statement on Interpol's forthcoming shows with Morrissey, "We thought it would be a good show for our band. That's how I'm looking at it. I don't get too much into the other stuff."
Today Banks has clarified his quote published on Hot Press. Uploading a note to Twitter, Banks wrote, "The actual quote that I gave regarding the upcoming Morrissey tour was "we thought it would be a good show for OUR FANS." Not "for our band". I do not always hold the same beliefs as the artists I work with, and I do not consider that to be a requisite."
