New York post-punk heroes and one of the most revered indie rock bands of the 21st century confirmed as the newest addition to INmusic #13’s impressive line-up.
Interpol took the lead of the indie revolution that first swept New York and then the rest of the globe by storm in the early 2000’s and changed the face of music for generations to come.
Alongside The Strokes, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and a series of other rock revival bands from the US that made up the fresh new indie NYC scene, Interpol remained one of the most acclaimed and active post-punk and indie rock bands from the turn of the millennium. Interpol was founded in 1997 by Paul Banks, Daniel Kessler, Carlos Dengler and Greg Drudy, who left the band in 2000 with Sam Fogarino taking his place on the drums.
In the midst of the buzzing New York scene, Interpol released their debut Turn On The Bright Lights in 2002, an album that will prove a musical rite of passage for the early generations of millennials as well as an emblem for the most prolific and impacting American music scene since the Seattle grunge era in the early 90’s.
Their creative strength and recognizable sound, with clear and unhindered influences from Joy Division and the dark introverted post-punk world, so omnipresent in their debut album was successfully translated and explored further in their following four highly acclaimed studio albums – Antics (2005), Our Love To Admire (2007), Interpol (2010) and El Pintor (2014). After the departure of bassist Carlos Dengler in 2010 following the end of the recording of their fourth studio album, Interpol embarks on a much needed four year long hiatus and band members turn to individual side-projects.
Last year the band marked the 15th anniversary of the release of their cult debut Turn On The Bright Lights with a world tour and announced they have started work on their sixth studio album set for release sometime in 2018. With only two more shows announced and taking place in the UK, Interpol’s Croatian debut at INmusic festival #13 will be one of the few live performances by the indie favourites in the summer of 2018.
INmusic #13 will take place at the Isle of Youth in Zagreb’s lake Jarun from June 25th to the 27th, 2018. Interpol will be joining an impressive set of rock greats – Queens Of The Stone Age, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Alice In Chains, David Byrne, St. Vincent, Portugal. The Man, The Kills, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, and many more names to be announced. Festival tickets are available online via the official festival webshop for just 53 EUR as well as seven day camping tickets for just 33 EUR.
