Interpol - 'El Pintor'

"It feels like we've come full circle in a way," Interpol's frontman Paul Banks told NME earlier this year, at the start of their second stint on the NME Awards Tour (their first was supporting The Datsuns in 2003). New album 'El Pintor' mirrors...

Live Review: Interpol

Live Review: Interpol

As the stiflingly hot air punches NME in the face like an angry, invisible hair dryer, the other couple of thousand people in the venue have their eyes glued to the stage as if a momentous world event is about to happen. It’s not, obviously,...

Interpol: Coachella Festival, Friday April 29

Interpol: Turn On The Bright Lights

Interpol: Turn On The Bright Lights
