New York indie rock band Interpol will be getting pretty artsy at the release show for its new album El Pintor. Today (Aug. 20), the "All The Rage Back Home" group announced it will be playing a concert at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to welcome in its fifth studio effort and the Met's new mobile app.
According to Pitchfork, Interpol will be playing a concert on Sept. 2 at the Met's Temple of Dendur. Set in the Sackler Wing of the massive museum, the Temple of Dendur is an Aeolian sandstone temple gate from roughly 15 B.C.
A.k.a., it's really pretty and a pretty baller way to kick off a new album.
In addition to promoting Interpol's follow-up to its 2012 self-titled album, the band's performance will also help to usher in the museum's mobile app. A special reception before the concert will show off the new tool which helps to create a portal to the Met.
Tickets for Interpol's Sept. 2 show at the Met are on sale now for $45. The package will also feature a private reception featuring complimentary beer, wine and snacks... though that does make the event open just to those age 21 or older.

Interpol's Met announcement is the latest news for the band. After releasing the stunning single "All The Rage Back Home," Interpol dropped a second El Pintor track, the layered, upbeat anthem "Ancient Ways."
El Pintor will be released on Sept. 9.
