New York City’s kings of post-punk return to Australia and to the Splendour stage in all their dapper glory.
With complex guitars and Paul Banks’s inimitable sombre baritone Interpol quickly became one of the world’s most-loved and -lauded bands after the release of their seminal debut album Turn on the Bright Lights in 2002. Backing this up with the equally acclaimed Antics, Interpol blew us away at Splendour in 2005 and sold-out headline shows in just hours.
Two albums later Interpol has famously headlined some of the biggest festivals in the world including Coachella, Summer Sonic Festival and Glastonbury. With a new album due later this year Splendour looks forward to hearing some new tunes from one of our favourite bands.
