‘Fine Mess’ comes ahead of a slew of worldwide tour dates this year, and is, as frontman Paul Banks explains, “about a sanguine and starry pair, buoyed and dashed alike by their own dreams and appetites”.
Interpol have been confirmed to play Primavera Sound, Best Kept Secret, NOS Primavera Sound, Hurricane Festival, and Garorock this summer so far, and will appear at London’s Victoria Park as special guests of The Strokes for their All Points East show in May.
They’ll then play two UK headline dates in Leeds and Brighton in May.
