Interpol to Play Chicago’s Metro

By Randy J. Klodz

Interpol, New York City’s indie-rock flavored darlings, is prepared to return its head-nodding stage show to Chicago’s Metro on June 3.

Interpol—which includes Paul Banks (vocals, guitar), Daniel Kessler (guitar), Carlos Dengler (bass, keyboards) and Sam Fogarino (drums)—is on tour in support of the band’s upcoming album “Our Love to Admire,” which is scheduled to hit U.S. stores on July 10.

From the forthcoming album, which will be out on Capitol Records as the band’s first major label release, fans have been gobbling up the album’s initial single “The Heinrich Maneuver,” which recently hit radio outlets. Longtime fans of Interpol have been grooving to tracks like “NYC,” “Obstacle 1,” “PDA” and “Slow Hands” for years, and the buzz surrounding Interpol continues to grow with each album and tour.

Interpol continually sells out larger Chicago venues such as Aragon Ballroom and Riviera Theatre and fans are sure to be in for a treat within the intimate walls of the legendary Metro.

Metro is at 3730 N. Clark St. in Chicago. Tickets for this all-ages show are listed for $29 each with showtime slated for 7:30 p.m. For more info on Interpol log on to
