, Staff

After a long awaited return to the studio, Interpol have announced a string of shows to road test material off their forthcoming album due later this year. The New York-based indie rockers will play Boston’s House of Blues on Thursday, August 5. Tickets for the show, which costs $30 and $40, go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.

Interpol’s long awaited self-titled fourth album is set be released on September 7 through Matador Records. The album is a follow up to 2007’s Our Love to Admire, which saw the band expanding their sound, utilizing more string and synth arrangements.

Last week the band released a statement to their fans about the album saying, “The month of September; summer ends, classes begin. The coming of a new season is in the air as autumn approaches. A time of year when the natural world slips into a slumber, and Interpol releases its fourth studio recording,” adding, in regards to the tour, “We can’t wait to share our new effort with all of you. We’ve just announced some shows and we look forward to see you soon in your neck of the woods”.

The band were originally scheduled to open select dates on U2’s summer tour and had added a several headlining shows of their own in nearby markets, including a show at Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel. However, the band cancelled the entire tour after U2 was forced to cancel their shows as a result of lead singer Bono’s back injury.
