Interpol Reschedules Summer Dates

Interpol has rolled out a brand new bunch of U.S. and Canadian shows to make up for its canceled summer dates in support of U2.

U2, and subsequently Interpol, was forced to postpone its summer tour after Bono was rushed to a Munich, Germany, hospital for emergency back surgery.

The new North American dates begin July 23 at Pearl Street Ballroom in Northampton, Mass., with gigs booked through an Aug. 21 show at The Fillmore in Miami Beach, Fla.

The New York City-based indie rock band is also making stops at Rams Head Live! in Baltimore (July 25), House of Blues in Atlantic City, N.J. (July 31), Metropolis in Montreal (Aug. 9), First Avenue in Minneapolis (Aug. 14) and Vic Theatre in Chicago (Aug. 15).

Fans can catch the band tonight at Mr. Small’s Theatre in Pittsburgh, followed by a show at Crocodile Rock Café in Allentown, Pa. (June 25). Interpol is also performing June 26 at the Creators Project Party at Milk Studios in New York.

This summer’s trek will feature Interpol’s new touring lineup with Dave Pajo (who played guitar for Slint and has worked with Tortoise, Will Oldham and Zwan) on bass and Secret Machines’ Brandon Curtis on keys and vox.

In May Interpol announced that it was parting ways with bassist Carlos Dengler, explaining that Dengler “decided to follow another path, and to purse new goals” and the “separation was amicable.” Before saying goodbye to his bandmates, Dengler helped Interpol complete its upcoming album.

The band’s self-titled, fourth studio album is set for release Sept. 7 on Matador Records.
