New York gloom-rockers Interpol have been working on the follow-up to their 2010 self-titled album for quite a while now. After sporadically giving evasive information about the new record on twitter without revealing a title or a release date yet, they played the first show since 2011 at Riverside in Newcastle last night (Sunday 16th March).

The gig served as a warm-up for the upcoming NME Awards Tour 2014 with Austin, Texas which also features Temples, Royal Blood and Circa Waves (see dates below).

Along with a selection of older material, the band also debuted three new tracks: 'My Desire' which showcases classic Interpol murky, dramatic soundscapes woven around a sinuous bassline, the catchier ‘Anywhere' driven by interesting layered guitars and 'All The Rage Back Home'. Mobile footage of ‘My Desire’ and ‘Anywhere’ have already surfaced on Youtube.
