Interpol viert feestje Door op 01 oktober 2012

Band: Interpol
Album_title: Turn On The Bright Lights
Genre: Alternative
Label: EMI

De New Yorkse band Interpol heeft even vrijaf. Frontman Paul Banks is namelijk solo op pad en brengt binnenkort zijn album BANKS uit. De rest van de band zit echter niet stil en is de archieven in gedoken om daar zeldzaam materiaal op te snorren. Dit zal komen te staan op een 19 november te verschijnen ‘10th Anniversary Edition’ van hun debuut Turn On The Bright Lights.

Met Turn On The Bright Lights brak Interpol in 2002 op grote schaal door. De band had de vijf jaar daar voorafgaand enorm lopen leuren met hun materiaal. “Needless to say this was a memorable moment for us. We never had any expectations for how the album would be received. We just wanted to present our music as an album to anyone who would be open to hearing it. It was incredible to finally tour and see people react to these songs. We never could have imagined that the album would have reached so many people throughout the world”, zo stelt gitarist en componist Daniel Kessler in het vandaag naar buiten gebrachte persbericht over de re-release. “We spent a good deal of time this past year digging through our archives and asking others to dig through theirs in the hopes of uncovering some forgotten material. The result of our hunting and gathering has yielded this Tenth Anniversary Edition of Turn On the Bright Lights.”

Het is voor de fans van Interpol dan ook zeker wel een pretpakketje te noemen, deze heruitgave. De set komt uit als dubbel-cd met dvd en als dubbel-LP met dvd. Beiden verpakt in en gebonden boekwerk met nooit eerder uitgebracht fotomateriaal. Ook verschijnt een digitale variant, met digitaal boekwerk. Wie de set op de website van de band bestelt, krijgt er een replica van hun allereerste stukje merchandise bij; een button met het bandlogo.
