A while back we told you about EmptyMansions, the solo project from Interpol drummer Sam Fogarino, whose debut album is out April 2. You can stream "Lyra" from the album below and pre-order the album here.

While a tour hasn't been announced yet, EmptyMansions (which also features Duane Denison of Jesus Lizard/Tomahawk and Secret Machines' Brandon Curtis) have scheduled a couple NYC shows: Knitting Factory on April 26 and Mercury Lounge on April 27 (tickets). Tickets to Mercury Lounge are currently on AmEx presale with a regular on-sale on Friday (2/15) at noon; Tickets for Knitting Factory are on sale Friday at noon.

A list of all known EmptyMansions dates, April 4th at DC9 included (which we're presenting as part of a series of shows BV is presenting in DC), and the song stream are below...

as if interpol wasn't bad enough.

Interpol and Arcade Fire need to join hands and stop making music!

Wow, what was the point of that terrible song?

Interpol made a really good record. The first one. Not great, but really good! And c'mon, you can hate Arcade Fire but they fully deserve their fame. And this guy's drumming is good! Maybe the record isn't as bad as this song. Maybe his second record will be good. Listen to Neil Young's first record!

Trying to stay positive here. Why hurt his feelings?

Let's remember that this is a DRUMMER's solo effort. Name one drummer aside from Phil Collins and Chris Bell whose solo efforts were good. GO!
