“A stunning performance from a band very much at the apex of their career.” The Fly

“Interpol’s future is secured…” NME

Interpol are back with their fourth (eponymous) album. It’s a richer, more textured post-punk affair that should take Paul Banks and Co to the next level….a stadium band in the making, if they choose to be.” The Daily Telegraph

“These Big Apple indie rockers kick off their upcoming album with this rich and punchy new single (Barricade), which is one of their strongest to date.” The Sun“…quite magnificent…” Evening Standard

“…another album of exquisitely anguished atmospherics.” – Independent On Sunday

Interpol swiftly become a byword for cool…trendsetters in their own right, inspiring the musical zeitgeist of the day and paving the way for a whole host of acts.” Clash

“New York’s finest.” – News Of The World

“Deep within the inner chambers of the Three-Horned Rhinoceros Beetle (Chalcosoma Caucasus), a closely guarded pheremone-harvesting ritual is about to begin.”




Interpol release their new single “Lights” on March 21st 2011, through Soft Limit / Co-Operative Music as a digital download only. The third single to be taken from their eponymous fourth album, “Lights” encompasses Daniel Kessler’s distinct guitar tones with the potency of Paul Banks brooding vocals, combining to climax after 5 minutes and 38 seconds of eerie intensity.


The accompanying video – directed by visual artist Charlie White – exploits the relationship between sex and death, and explores the release of pheremones within the uncharted world of the Three-Horned Rhinoceros beetle. Considered the muse throughout the production process, the beetle was the perfect compliment to the dominance of black that constantly surrounds Interpol.
