Interpol are an American rock band, formed in 1998 in New York City. The members of the band are Paul Banks (vocals, guitar), Daniel Kessler (guitar, back vocals), Carlos Dengler (bass, keyboards - commonly referred to as Carlos D.) and Sam Fogarino (drums). The band's debut album Turn on the Bright Lights was critically acclaimed, making it into the NME top ten albums of the year for 2002. The follow-up, Antics, was both a commercial and critical success. The group recently released its third album, Our Love to Admire.

Interpol are one of many bands associated with the New York indie music scene, being one of several groups that emerged out of the post-punk revival of the 2000s. The band's sound is generally a mix of bass throb and choppy, sparse guitar, drawing comparisons to post-punk bands Joy Division, The Chameleons, Kitchens of Distinction and Echo and The Bunnymen.
