Interpol To Play The Met for Album Release

INTERPOL TO PLAY THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART'S TEMPLE OF DENDUR CELEBRATING NEW ALBUM, 'EL PINTOR,' THE ALBUM COMES OUT September 9th on MAtador Records

On September 2, Interpol will perform at The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Temple of Dendur – a special concert celebrating Interpol’s first new album in four years, ‘El Pintor’ (Sept. 9, Matador Records), and the launch of the Met’s new flagship app. Recorded at Electric Lady Studios and Atomic Sound in NYC, ‘El Pintor’ was produced by Interpol, with Daniel Kessler playing guitar and piano, Samuel Fogarino on drums, and Paul Banks on vocals, guitars, and taking over bass duties for the first time. Rolling Stone already called it “perhaps their best effort since 2004’s ‘Antics’.” Interpol has just released the second single of the album

The September 2 performance by Interpol will celebrate the launch of The Met App, a major digital initiative of the Museum supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies. With this new mobile app, people anywhere – simply and easily – can keep in touch with what’s on and what’s new at the Museum on any given day. The Met will host a reception before the performance where attendees can be the first to try The Met App. For more information about the app, contact: communications@metmuseum.org

This week, Interpol will play shows at Las Vegas’ The Pool at The Cosmopolitan and at LA’s FYF Fest. Interpol’s extensive North American fall tour kicks off Sept. 15 in Vancouver and includes appearances at Austin City Limits Festival, two nights at NYC’s Terminal 5, and more.
