Fresh off two performances on the main stage at Coachella, post-punk revivalists Interpol captivated a packed house at The Warfield this past Tuesday with support from opener Guy Blakeslee of The Entrance Band.

Interpol, consisting of Paul Banks (lead vocals/guitar), Daniel Kessler (guitar/vocals) and Sam Fogarino (drums) along with tour additions Brandon Curtis (keyboards/vocals) and Brad Truax (bass guitar/vocals), have been on the road for the past year in support of their latest record El Pintor (read our review here), which was released in September.

Dressed in their trademark black suits and set against a backdrop of stunning visuals and lighting, the band mainly alternated between tracks from El Pintor and their heralded debut album Turn on the Bright Lights. New tracks “My Desire” and “All the Rage Back Home” were well-received from the crowd, but it was older tracks like “Evil” and “Stella Was a Diver and She Was Always Down” that triggered the most excitement and had people wildly bobbing their head to the beat. It’s these type of darkly atmospheric sounds driven by intricate guitar play and probing bass lines that Interpol fans have admired over the years. Re-imagining its established sound in new ways has been part of the group’s recent resurgence on El Pintor.

On this tour, Interpol proved that they are still putting out some of their best work, further cementing their place among indie-rock royalty.
