New Interpol Album

Published: 2004-04-20
New York band Interpol is back in the studio recording their second album. The album is to include two songs the band performed live in their shows last year, 'Length of Love' and 'NARC'. Interpol chose to head back to the studio with Peter Katis, who mixed Interpol's first album. Due to recording their second effort, Interpol has no immediate tour plans.

Interpol's debut 'Turn on the Bright Lights' was released in 2002 on Matador records. The band enjoyed large amounts of success; their album has already sold more than 275,000 copies, pretty impressive for an indie band not played on MTV every 3.2 minutes. 'Turn on the Bright Lights' appeared on many major music publications' lists of top albums of the year. Interpol also appeared in a recent edition of SPIN magazine, featured as one of the bands to look out for along with the Darkness, Thursday and the Distillers. It is expected the band will gain more notoriety in the mainstream.

Interpol is considered by some to be part of the recent 80s revival that includes such bands as the Stills and Hot Hot Heat. When reviewed the band's music often harkens the mention of Joy Division and Echo and the Bunnymen. The references have followed Interpol around since they formed in 1998, and the new album can be expected to bring more along with them, unless the band decides to head off in a completely new and unexpected direction.
