Interpol say “maybe it’s time” while posting details of a mysterious event

Something is happening in Mexico City tomorrow

Interpol have been teasing something, after tweeting images and links to an event in Mexico City.

The band first posted a link to Facebook yesterday (June 5) titled ‘Temporal,’ while also pointing fans to a sign-up option on their website.

Today (June 6) they shared a new photo of a monolithic mural as well as the coordinates “19.411798, -99.18227.” Those coordinates point to a mural in Mexico City where The XX once replicated the cover of I See You.


They captioned the tweet: “9.30am CT. Tomorrow. Maybe it’s time. R.” You can see the media pass and mural below.

Last month, the band shared a short documentary reflecting on their debut album ‘Turn On The Bright Lights‘.

The record was released in 2002 and celebrated its 15th birthday last year. Interpol treated fans to an anniversary show in New York, playing it in its entirety for the first time at shows around the world.


The short documentary spans eight-minutes and was filmed on one of the tour stops in Mexico City. The four-piece reflect on the songs and experiences of making the record. “Carlos [D, former bassist] had a joke when we were writing ‘…Bright Lights’ that we should call the album ‘Celebrated Basslines Of The Future’,” frontman Paul Banks says at one point.

“I think that’s such a hilarious thing to suggest, but also very apropos,” he continued. “His basslines are crazy good.”

The band also gave an update about their new album, posting a Bowie-featuring image and simply captioning it: “Mastering”.
