Interpol announce Dublin date
Interpol will make a hugely-anticipated return to Dublin next April
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 30 Nov 2004
Interpol have confirmed an April 6 appearance at Dublin's Olympia Theatre. Tickets for the long-awaited of the New York four - their first since August 2003 - will go on sale Friday December 3, priced from €33.
If you can’t wait ‘til then - and have a spare hundred quid to blow - get yourself a plane ticket to Los Angeles post-haste. December 11 sees Interpol stacked up against the likes of Franz Ferdinand, Snow Patrol, The Music, Modest Mouse, The Killers, Muse (and more!) in the 'Almost Acoustic Christmas' extravaganza being staged by LA radio station KROQ.
For those of us unable to attend due to Ryanair's limited flight routes, you can follow the two-day proceedings on KROQ's webcast.

First formed in New York City in 1997, though not releasing their debut album Turn On The Bright Lights until 2002, Interpol have slowly and steadily built up a vast international audience for their dark, downbeat and gothic guitar-driven indie rock, garnering no shortage of critical acclaim along the way.

Since the release of their sophomore album Antics late last year, New York goth-rock quartet Interpol have risen to the pantheon of great contemporary bands. In a rare in-depth interview, the group’s erudite frontman Paul Banks here discusses the making of Antics, their upcoming support slot with U2, the band’s peers in the NYC indie scene, The Strokes, Nirvana and David Lynch - and where one of the most acclaimed groups of recent years go to from here. Interview by Paul Nolan.

“ROSE-mair-ee!” yells a sold-out Olympia along with Paul Banks, as the Morse-code bassline of ‘Evil” jitters away beneath. “HEAV-en re-STORES you in LIFE!” So, yes, onstage it looks like Interpol: five smart-suited gentlemen throwing rock shapes in a graveyard-mist fug that is ‘lit’ (if you can say that about a near-dark stage) in their trademark two colours, black and dark red. But turn around to face tonight’s all-singing, all-dancing crowd, and you could be at an Oasis concert circa Definitely Maybe.

They have the suits. They have the haircuts. They certainly have the fuck-you attitude. And on the evidence of ‘Slow Hands’ and the album that spawned it, Antics, Interpol really do have the tunes to back up the hype.

Of all the mooted heirs to the U.S Garage throne of The Strokes, it would have taken a scarily prescient punter (or a fundamentalist goth) to have put money on the accession of Interpol.
2004-09-23 - REVIEW
They are far, far superior to anyone in the current retro brat pack, with songs that remind you of Sonic Youth without the feedback, the Velvets without the drones, Joy Division without the doom laden fatalism and The Fall with lyrics that you can actually decipher.
