Interpol start 15th anniversary Turn On The Bright Lights EU tour this month



Interpol will celebrate the 15th Anniversary of their debut album Turn On The Bright Lights by playing the record in its entirety during a run of European headline and festival dates this summer.  Tickets for the shows (listed below) will go on sale this Friday, January 27th. Limited tickets are available in an exclusive fan pre-sale for headline shows, at

Interpol began in New York in 1997, when guitarist Daniel Kessler recruited bassist Carlos Dengler and singer/guitarist Paul Banks to form a band.  In 2002, with Sam Fogarino on drums, the band signed to Matador Records and released Turn On The Bright Lights, which made it to tenth position on NME’s list of 2002’s top releases while Pitchfork named it the year’s #1 album.

Over the next decade and a half, Interpol would go on to wide critical and commercial acclaim, with four subsequent high-charting records on the Billboard 200; earning rave reviews across the map from Rolling Stone to TIME; performing on late night television shows including Late Show with David Letterman and Conan and playing major festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Primavera. Turn On The Bright Lights has sold over a million albums to date, and continues to be a complex, melodic, unforgettable debut release.

The band (Banks, Kessler & Fogarino) is currently working on new material in their native New York, due for release through Matador Records in 2018.
