Interpol Returns To The Road

Interpol has booked its first tour since 2011. Drummer Sam Fogarino told the press that year, “We need a big break. … We need to recoup and go on a proper hiatus.” Now the band is ready for a proper outing, which starts March 18 in Glasgow, U.K.

During the 2011 interview with Gigwise Fogarino added, “Who knows what is ahead for the band, I think we’re all just looking forward to relaxing for a while and catching up with our own things.”

So, what’s ahead for the band? Along with the U.K. tour, fans can look forward to a new album from the band. Interpol is working on the follow-up to its 2010 self-titled release.

This week the New York-based indie rock band announced, “We currently find ourselves in the UK finishing the new album so it feels only appropriate to announce our first UK dates of 2014 from here. We’re pleased to say that we’ll be headlining this year’s NME Awards Tour. We had a great time playing the Awards Tour in 2003 and we’re very much looking forward to our return. It should be a lot of fun. The UK crowds are among the best!”
Here’s the schedule:

March 18 – Glasgow, United Kingdom, O2 Academy Glasgow     
March 19 – Leeds, United Kingdom, O2 Academy Leeds     
March 20 – Manchester, United Kingdom, Manchester Academy
