Interpol Tour News and Updates
Interpol was the preeminent indie band to emerge out of New York City’s post-punk revival. Decked out in well-tailored suits playing to tune of British-tinged gloom, Interpol rode the goth-punk wave to international renown and paved the way for such acts as The Killers and The Bravery. The group was formed in the late 1990s, when guitarist Daniel Kessler and drummer Greg Dundy were students at NYU, but it wasn’t until the early 2000s, and the drop of songs like “Slow Hands” and “Evil,” that the band rose to global popularity.
Interpol draws inspiration from Joy Division and the Chameleons, welding atmospheric sounds with complex riffs and darkly mysterious overtones—highlighted by lead singer Paul Banks’ glum baritone. The group played local venues in the Big Apple, eventually hopping across the pond to expand their audience. Interpol released a critically acclaimed debut LP “Turn on the Bright Lights” and followed up with a successful tour, numerous TV appearances and opening slots for The Cure and U2. Later albums “Antics” and “Our Love to Admire” affirmed quartet’s place in rock music, and the band released a self-tilted album in 2010 before going on hiatus.
Interpol has returned as a trio to indie record label Matador. They are set to resurface with a fifth studio album “El Pintor” due later this year. You’ve waited patiently for the band to return, and now you can buy Interpol tickets for their first global tour in three long years.
