Interpol on Letterman

Thanks to theaudioperv for uploading the video.

A reminder that the band will be performing Barricade on the Late Show with David Letterman tonight (July 29th) at 11:35 pm eastern & pacific / 10:35 pm central & mountain on CBS. The performance was taped on July 26th.

A funny thing happened on the way to Richmond...

Interesting reports on Twitter from tonight's show. Seems it wasn't just David with flight troubles, but the whole band. Reports from the venue say that their flight was delayed due to bad weather, and the show is running two hours late. Interpol won't take the stage until midnight now.

longarm04 - Interpol not arriving until midnite so I'm headed home. To their credit, The National offered full refunds if you couldn't stay

pixiesgirlleah - So w/ storms & such, Interpol is delayed. Supposed to play at 10.Now scheduled at midnight. I think I smell a rat...

Interpol plays Richmond, VA

Live at The National / Opening bands: The Postelles and Twin Tigers
Preview / Setlist / Photos
Videos: Success / Success & Evil / Lights 1 - 2 / Mammoth / PDA / Slow Hands / Hands Away

Let's hope David can make it to the show:
davidpajo - At 4am, I took three trains to the airport for a 7am flight. Layover in Boston. Flight to Richmond cancelled, so off to NYC for a standby...

Poor David! 19+ hours to get to the show tonight.
davidpajo - 04:15 - Left home for Richmond VA. 23:28 - Wheels touch down in Richmond VA.

Topspin talks Interpol campaign

Topspin Media has posted an article that talks a bit about their work with Interpol for the new album/tour campaign.

Interpol reviews and reactions

The Hook review.

Cannibal Cheerleader loves it, though they only have the poor quality rip. But Dumbing of America has the CD, and they don't - "We have an "official" copy of the Interpol record. We're huge fans and.... we're disappointed. Too ethereal. Not enough melody."

Interpol preview

The preview clips are back - Success / Memory Serves / Summer Well (wrong clip, they have Success again) / Lights / Barricade / Always Malaise (The Man I Am) / Safe Without / Try It On / All of the Ways / The Undoing.

Again, with the exception of Lights and Barricade, these are the very low quality web streams, and have the skips in them. Just a warning in case you want a better first listen to the songs.

Atlanta tickets

Tickets for the Nov. 1st show in Atlanta are going on sale Aug. 13th.

Listen to Memory Serves

The Hook has posted Memory Serves, track 2 on Interpol. It's from the poor quality web rip (with the skips included), so if you'd rather wait and hear a clean version, wait a bit longer.

The Fly loves the new album

THEFLYMAGAZINE - #ontheofficestereo Interpol 'Interpol'. Highlights are 'Lights', 'Always Malaise' and 'The Undoing' - all fucking brilliant.
In case you missed it earlier, here's their track by track breakdown.
