Interpol: Albert Hall, Manchester – photo review
Albert Hall, Manchester
February 8th 2015

Photographer Melanie Smith shot down the M62 to capture the American rock band Interpol during a stop off in Manchester as part of their world tour. Check the photos out in the gallery below.

The band are currently on a massive world tour, riding high on the back of the acclaim for their fifth studio album El Pintor (Painter) which was released in September 2014.

Interpol are Paul Banks (vocals, guitar), Daniel Kessler (guitar, piano), Sam Fogarino (drums), and Bradon Curtis (keyboards), Brad Truarx (bass).

The band arrived on stage just after 9pm, looking all mean and moody amidst the dark atmospheric surrounding of the Gothic venue. Three songs from the left only (instructions from the band) and its all over for photographs, but meanwhile the band play on.

Live reviews editor and head of photography: I can't imagine my life without music or photography, both go hand in hand and have played a big part in my life. I have experienced many musical genres, northern soul in 1975, the early punk movement, drifting into the electronic 'new Romantic' era, a trip around the rock scene, a taste of indie and a smattering of pop. I possess an eclectic taste in music and a lust for life; new experiences are what drives this machine. I still have that punk DIY spirit and used this to create my own website Mudkiss Fanzine in 2008 - 2013. I am the official photographer for 'Louder Than Words' music literary festival and a house photographer for Academy Music Group. Available for commissioned work, please contact me
