"Couple band members will be in Seattle doing some radio stuff and will be doing a signing on Saturday - weekend before release. See flyer.

Tuesday the 7th, we are doing an outdoor show in LA. we're announcing all the details next Tuesday.

Still more to come....including a secret show later that week, somewhere!

Update 2: The interview is up now.

Interpol on Theft of the Dial

"It was our pleasure to welcome Interpol to the Current studios to take over our airwaves for a Theft of the Dial session. I was joined by guitarist Daniel Kessler and drummer Sam Fogarino, who each brought in a few songs and explained them -- their history, their production, or just what makes them good. Vocalist Paul Banks wasn't able to come in (per the band, he was at the hotel sleeping) but he nonetheless made a surprising appearance at one point... Daniel & Sam were great guys, and I get the feeling that if we'd let them, they could have gone on much longer -- as they asked me at one point, "Are you SURE we can only do six songs?" (Thanks Gehain)

A couple of changes for the upcoming European dates. First, the Sept. 16th show in Caen, France has been removed from the Shows page, and Le Cargo says it is canceled due to the band having "important promotional commitments in England."

Second, U2 has pushed the Sept. 29th show in Seville, Spain back a day to Sept 30th, due to a strike planned for the 29th.
