Just as the release of their 2002 debut, Turn on the Bright Lights, was followed by over two years of touring, Interpol are supporting their sophomore effort, last year’s Antics, with nearly as rigorous an international jaunt. The New York foursome return next month to launch another string of U.S. dates. The fifteen-city tour, with opening act Blonde Redhead, kicks off February 7th in Cincinnati and wraps on February 28th in Philadelphia.
All this after opening for the Cure’s Curiosa summer festival, headlining a twenty-two-city tour of North America last fall and spending January in Japan.
After doing their duty stateside, the moody indie darlings will rush back for more U.K. dates, followed by shows in Germany, Italy, France and Spain.
