Hard to believe that it’s been 15 years since Interpol broke out with their acclaimed debut Turn on the Bright Lights. To celebrate, frontman Paul Banks and company will be heading out on a European tour where they’ll be performing the influential album, which included hits like “Say Hello The The Angels”, “PDA” and “NYC”, in full.

The dapper New York rockers also announced that they were working on a new album for release in 2018. This is all great news for fans of the indie rock veterans after taking a brief hiatus in 2014 after putting out their album El Pintor. Exclusive fan pre-sale for headline shows goes live at 9am GMT on Wednesday at interpolnyc.com

Interpol singer and guitarist, Banks, has kept busy with a side-project, Banks & Steelz. The well-received collaboration with Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA released and toured with an album, Anything But Words, in 2016.
