It’s been two-and-a-half years since Interpol’s last album, 2014’s El Pintor, which was their fifth. Frontman Paul Banks has kept busy with Banks & Steelz, his side-project with Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA that released their debut album, Anything But Words, last August. Interpol are working on a new album due for release on Matador in 2018, but in the meantime they have announced some tour dates where they will perform their classic debut album, 2002’s Turn on the Bright Lights, in honor of its 15th anniversary.

The New York band will be performing the whole album in its entirety. Alas, American fans, the dates are only in Europe. We can only hope that some U.S. dates will be announced at some point (the press release says “more dates to follow”). Bassist Carlos Dengler has long since left Interpol, but the rest of the Turn on the Bright Lights lineup (Banks, guitarist Daniel Kessler, drummer Sam Fogarino) remain intact. Tickets go on sale this Friday, January 27. The dates are below, followed by three videos from the album.
