Interpol have been added to this year’s Open’Er Festival and will appear at the event on July 3rd.

The band stayed busy with the release of their A Fine Mess EP last month, one which Live4ever said had a ‘vaguely oxymoronic title that suits it perfectly‘: “Given the format and timing, you might have expected this to be a diversionary exercise, but as the atmospheres build across the icy, unforgiving Real Life and The Weekend’s evident paranoia (‘Please say this whole adventure is dialling in/The deep state, it’s all self-interest, leave it there’), the weight of contrary evidence is enough to have obsessives saluting the credentials of a unique chapter.”

“These are, however, men of process. No Big Deal features a slight loosening of the tourniquet and flits ‘From the beach..to the strip club’ as a salute to Banks & co.’s grandest traditions; closer Thrones could’ve been plucked from almost any location in the post-Dengler canon.”
