Some say "Again?!" and others "Finally!" but this much is known: Interpol will bring back the dark suits and darker tunes to South Florida in April. Still in support of the group's self-titled effort and fourth album overall, the visit is part of a tidy North American tour in April and May.
Singer Paul Banks, guitarist Daniel Kessler, and drummer Sam "myriad local connections" Fogarino will obviously be taking part, but there's no word yet if ex-Slint luminary Dave Pajo will suit up again on bass. Possibly completely unrelated: Duff McKagan's not busy with Jane's Addiction anymore. Hmmm.
As Pollstar points out:
Fans who purchase presale tickets will receive a free download including the
following tracks: "Specialist" from the band's 2002 self-titled EP;
"Slow Hands" (remixed by Spoon's Britt Daniel), a bonus track on the Japanese release of 2004's Antics; and "The Undoing" from the band's 2010 self-titled full-length album.
Interpol. 8:30 p.m. Friday, April 29, at Fillmore Miami Beach, 1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. Tickets cost $33, and presale info is here. Tickets for the general public go on sale Friday here.
