From I Heart Radio:

"Interpol is set to release their new album El Pintor on September 9th, but the band is also giving fans a taste of their new music with an exclusive show at the iHeartRadio Theater in New York City on Friday, September 5th, as part of iHeartRadio Live.

The band is set to perform songs from their brand new album, including their single "All The Rage Back Home," during their intimate iHeartRadio Live show. Fans definitely won't want to miss the band performing their new music live!

El Pintor is the band's fifth studio album and their first one since 2010. The album was produced by Interpol, with Daniel Kessler playing guitar and piano, Samuel Fogarino on drums, and Paul Banks on vocals, guitars, and taking over bass duties for the first time.

Fun fact, the album's title El Pintor is also an anagram for Interpol!

The best part is that no Interpol fan will miss out on the band's exclusive iHeartRadio Live show. Fans can tune in to a live stream on Clear Channel Alt and AAA radio station websites, as well as on at 7 p.m. ET on September 5th.

Don't miss all the rage!"
