But the Interpol camp are a flexible bunch, as yesterday's announcement -- not to mention the band's recent lineup additions in the wake of bassist Carlos Dengler's departure -- proves. Tickets for the tour, which gets underway on July 23 in Northampton, Pa., and runs until Aug. 21 in Miami, go on sale Friday, June 25.
In advance of Interpol's eponymous fourth album, which is due in September and marks a return to Matador after a short tenure with major label Capitol Records, the band started road testing two new songs, 'Success' and 'Summer Well,' this week according to Spin. Interpol played in Buffalo, New York last night as part of prearranged warm-up dates for those postponed U2 shows, rounding out the week with gigs in Pittsburgh, Allentown, Pa., and New York this week.
The Paul Banks-fronted outfit, which recently added Dave Paio on bass and onetime Secret Machines member Brandon Curtis on keyboards, will still get the opportunity to play with U2, provided that band's late summer European shows continue as planned. As for other activity in the Interpol camp, the group's new music video for the track 'Lights' is now available at the band's official website.
