Fans chanted "we built this city on Interpol" last night (March 23) as the NME Awards Tour 2014, with Austin Texas rolled into Liverpool.

The band tweeted about the chant this morning, writing:

The NME Awards Tour 2014 with Austin, Texas kicked off at Glasgow's O2 Academy on Wednesday with headliners Interpol returning to Scotland for the first time since 2011 and turning in a career-spanning performance that offered the crowd a few tantalising glimpses at the band's forthcoming new LP.

Playing a near-identical set to their warm-up gig at the Riverside in Newcastle on Sunday (March 16), the stylish New Yorkers – backed by bassist Brad Truax and Secret Machines' Brandon Curtis on keyboards – took to the stage dressed in black suits and powered straight into 'Say Hello To The Angels' from their 2002 debut 'Turn on the Bright Lights', followed by 2005 single 'Evil'.

Those eager for a preview of the band's as-yet-untitled fifth album were not disappointed, either, with three new tracks – 'My Desire', 'Anywhere' and 'All The Rage Back Home' – getting an airing. The night began with Circa Waves, followed by the muscular riffs of Royal Blood and the psychedelia of Temples.

Interpol played the following in Liverpool:

'Say Hello To The Angels'
'My Desire'
'Not Even Jail'
'The Heinrich Maneuver'
'All The Rage Back Home'
'Hands Away'
'Obstacle 1'
'Slow Hands'
'Stella Was A Diver And She Was Always Down'
