Interpol Showcase New Album At Intimate London Gig

September 16, 2010
Interpol Showcase New Album At Intimate London GigInterpol showcased several songs from their new album as they played an intimate gig in London last night (September 15).

The New York-based band also played a series of classic tracks at The Fly Presents… gig at Heaven.

As well as a limited number of lucky ticket holders, the band were watched by a crowd that included model Helena Christensen, actor Mat Horne and members of White Lies.

Performing in the capital for the first time in three years, Interpol kicked off their set with new track 'Success', which also opens their self-titled fourth album.

The group, who were cast in atmospheric shadows throughout the gig, also played the new songs 'Summer Well', ‘Try It On' and a hard-hitting version of 'Barricade'.

The intimate showcase marked the first time Interpol had performed in the UK with new members, keyboardist Brandon Curtis of The Secret Machines and bassist David Pajo, who have both been drafted in since the departure of bassist Carlos D earlier this year.

Singer Paul Banks spoke sparingly during the set, except to thank the audience for their positive reaction to the band's songs - both new and old.

"Thank you very much. Thanks very much for being here everybody. I'm pretty sure this is our first European gig," Banks said ahead of new track 'Lights'.

Interpol's set also included the crowd favourites 'Slow Hands', 'NYC' and closer 'PDA'.

Interpol's setlist was:

  1. Success
  2. Say Hello To The Angels
  3. C'mere
  4. Summer Well
  5. Rest My Chemistry
  6. Evil
  7. Barricade
  8. Lights
  9. Narc
  10. Take You On A Cruise
  11. Stella Was A Diver And She Was Always Down
  12. Try It On
  13. Obstacle 1
  14. Not Even Jail
  15. NYC
  16. Slow Hands
  17. PDA
