Indie rockers, Interpol, are bringing their post-punk revivalist sound to US venues this spring and summer 2011. The Interpol concert schedule has the band touring nationally with over 30 Interpol tour dates currently scheduled.
Interpol hit the indie scene well before their 2002 debut album, Turn on the Bright Lights, lit up the Billboard Heatseekers album chart and indie rock radio. The band formed in New York in 1997 when lead singer Daniel Kessler and Greg Drudy met in philosophy classes at NYU. Between their initial formation in '97 and the release of their debut, Interpol crafted their unique indie rock sound and shopped it around to record labels. They released several critically acclaimed EPs before they were noticed by Matador Records, who released Interpol's first LP, Turn on The Bright Lights. Though more critically than commercially successful, the band were hugely instrumental in the revival of industrial rock during an era of music dominated by manufactured pop. Interpol released its second LP, Antics, in 2004 to excellent reviews and great commercial success. The album was certified gold in the US and charted two singles on Billboard's Alt Rock survey. Capitalizing on the exposure Antics' release granted them, Interpol tour dates were scheduled nationally, and the band played in front of ever increasing audiences and larger venues. The Interpol concert schedule had them on the road for eighteen months with Interpol tour dates booked as the opening act for the Cure and U2.
Following a year and a half of touring, Interpol regrouped in 2005 to record their third album, Our Love to Admire. Their third release featured the inclusion of keyboards and synthesizers, and marked their move to a major label, Capital Records. To accompany the release, Interpol tour dates were booked as the headliners for the 2007 Lollapalooza Musical Festival in Chicago. More recently, in 2010, the band released their self-titled fourth album, which spawned the hit single, "Barricade." In support of this record, Interpol tour dates 2011 have the band playing more than thirty shows throughout the summer. Do not miss this opportunity to catch the haunting lyrics and electric live performances of one of rock's most exciting bands.
