Artist Biography

Interpol is an iconic indie rock band hailing from New York City. The band started out of New York University when the members met in college in the late 90s. Interpol became an official band in 1998 when they issued a series of self-released EPs. The band made regular appearances at New York venues including Brownie’s and the Mercury Lounge which helped them build a local following. In 2001, they did a U.K. tour that included a session for BBC Radio. In 2002, Interpol signed with Matador Records who released the band’s debut album Turn on the Bright Lights that same year. The album reached number 101 on the U.K. Albums Chart and number 158 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart in the U.S. while also spending a year on Billboard’s Independent Albums Chart. Interpol toured heavily following their strong debut release until 2003 when they recorded and released their second album Antics. The album hit number 15 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart and number 21 on the U.K. Albums Chart. Another lengthy global tour followed the album’s release. Interpol continued to chart for the next two decades with their most recent album being 2022’s The Other Side of Make-Believe.
