Interpol announce new album and UK tour

Interpol have announced their long-awaited return with a new album and tour in 2014.

The NYC band will release their fifth album later this year and will headline the 2014 edition of the NME Awards Tour.

For the tour, which takes place in March, they’ll be joined by Temples, Royal Blood and Circa Waves.

Daniel Kessler of Interpol said, “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!”
