Interpol previewed three new songs when they headlined this year’s NME Awards Tour, with Austin, Texas. Track titles included ‘My Desire’, and ‘All The Rage Back Home’. The band topped the bill above Temples, Royal Blood and Circa Waves.
Speaking to NME earlier this year, guitarist Daniel Kessler said that he felt a “new, natural energy” between the band while making the album. “We’re never lacking ideas or inspiration,” he said. “There’s always something new to be said, and if you don’t have something new to say, that’s when you should take a break. We got back together because we felt that some of these songs had a certain urgency. It feels new again.”
