Interpol have announced a number of UK dates in addition to the group's festival appearances this summer.

The New York-based band will play five shows split between August and November, culminating in a London gig at Alexandra Palace.

Interpol will begin their tour in Birmingham on August 20th, before moving on to Newcastle on the 21st and Edinburgh on the 22nd.

The band will then play two huge shows during November, beginning at the Empress Ballroom in Blackpool on the 28th and finishing in the capital on the 29th.

Festival performances at Oxegen in Dublin on July 7th, followed by T In The Park on July 8th and the Carling Weekend on August 24th and 25th have also been scheduled.

The band played a set at California's Coachella festival earlier this year and then made a low-key appearance at the London Koko club earlier this month in preparation for the release of their new album.

Our Love to Admire is released on July 9th and will be preceded by the single Heinrich Maneuver on July 2nd.
