New Interpol Album, Antics, Due Sept. 28

New York rock act Interpol will release its highly anticipated sophomore album, “Antics,” Sept. 28 via Matador. The 10-track set is highlighted by the dancefloor-worthy “Slow Hands,” the slow, fragmented “Public Pervert,” the foreboding “Length of Love” and “NARC,” which veers from jagged guitars in its verses to lush chord changes in its chorus.

The latter two cuts were previously debuted live on tours in support of 2002’s “Turn on the Bright Lights,” which reached No. 4 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart and No. 5 on the Top Independent Albums tally. The set has sold 289,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

In conjunction with the release of “Antics,” Matador is sponsoring a contest to create 10 short films inspired by Interpol’s music. Interested parties are asked to submit treatments to the label by July 5, with 10 finalists to be bestowed with $1,000 and a 60-second fragment of music from the album in which to create their films. Visit the label’s Web site for full details.

As previously reported, Interpol will play the main stage of the Cure’s Curiousa Festival alongside the Rapture and Mogwai. The tour kicks off July 24 at the Sound Advice Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, Fla.

Here is the track list for “Antics”:

“Next Exit”
