Interpol – Post-Punk Indie Rock Band
Quintessential NYC indie band Interpol consists of vocalist/guitarist Paul Banks, guitarist/backing vocalist Daniel Kessler, and drummer Sam Fogarino. Initially formed in 1997, the group self-released a series of EPs, and after a brief UK tour in 2001, performed on John Peel's BBC Radio program. Around this time, the band signed to Matador, who released their self-titled EP prior to the release of the critically-acclaimed, career-making 2002 full-length Turn on the Bright Lights. Interpol's sophomore LP, Antics, was released in 2004, reaching gold status on both the US and UK charts and earning them slots performing with the likes of U2 and The Cure. By 2007, the band had signed to major label Columbia for the release of their third LP, Our Love to Admire.
In 2010, Interpol released a self-titled LP and signed on to support U2 on their 360° Tour. Four years later, the band were at work on their fifth studio album, El Pintor, and set to embark on a world tour. In honor of the fifteenth anniversary of Turn on the Bright Lights in 2017, Interpol announced a string of concerts date in which they'd play the entire album from cover to cover. In summer 2018, the band released Marauder, their sixth studio LP, via Matador Records.Less
