Interpol to headline NME Awards Tour and release fifth album
Interpol are to headline the NME Awards Tour with Temples, Royal Blood and Circa Waves.

The tour, which starts in Glasgow at the O2 Academy on March 18, will visit Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, Nottingham, Birmingham and Bristol before closing at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on March 27.

The March tour is ahead of Interpol’s expected fifth album release later this year. Daniel Kessler of Interpol said, "We currently find ourselves in the UK finishing the new album so it feels only appropriate to announce our first UK dates of 2014 from here. We're pleased to say that we'll be headlining this year's NME Awards Tour.

“We had a great time playing the Awards Tour in 2003 and we're very much looking forward to our return. It should be a lot of fun. The UK crowds are among the best!"

The NME Awards Tour is part of the NME Awards season that includes the NME Awards 2014 on 26 February in London. Tickets for the NME tour go on presale tomorrow with general sale on Friday.
