To celebrate the release of their sixth studio album, ‘Marauder’, Interpol performed a live set in Brooklyn at House of Vans last night (August 24). It was the last gig to be held at the venue before it’s imminent closure.
The band played a host of songs from the new album and included fan favourites from across their career such as ‘Lights’, ‘Not Even Jail’ and ‘Take You on a Cruise’. They also debuted ‘Complications’ for the first time live.
On Twitter, the band wrote: “Looking forward to celebrating Marauder at House of @Vans_66 Brooklyn tonight. We’ll be live streaming part of the show on Facebook and YouTube from 9:45pm EST, tune in.”
The album is the first since 2014’s ‘El Pintor’ and received much acclaim on its release yesterday.

“It’s refreshing to see a band of their legacy take such a risk…Interpol stand alone, free from corrupting influences, marauding on their own singular and instinctive quest to do themselves justice.”
Speaking to NME about their latest album, Banks said: “I think that there’s something very direct to this record that maybe sets it apart from some of the other ones. There’s a quality of minimalism that we tried to preserve.
“We try to keep it more faithful to what we were trying to achieve in the room without letting Pro-Tools make you want to ‘perfect’ anything. I would just play the songs top to bottom, because Fridmann [Dave, producer] got really excited by that possibility. It’s a very minimal, stripped-down rock recording – and I don’t think a lot of records get made that way these days.”
Interpol also released a new video for the opening song from ‘Marauder’, ‘If You Really Love Nothing’, earlier this week. It stars Kristen Stewart and Finn Wittrock.
