The National Are Heading Everywhere on Their Upcoming Tour. This is No Joke.


If you like, well, love indie rock darlings, The National, then you will have no shortage of seeing them this spring and summer. This band is literally slated to drop everywhere possible, on what looks like the longest tour known to man. Touring in support of their newest release High Violet (4AD), which hits stores in the U.S. on May 10th, it’s already a proven success.

The word from The National’s label is that these aren’t even ALL of the dates the band is slated to play. There are in fact more to be announced, especially for later in the year. How do they do it? We’ll never know, but hell we’re glad that they are. They’ll be playing with everyone from Rufus Wainwright to Pavement.

Check the dates below to see when you can catch the guys rolling into your town. Also be sure to jump on tickets as fast as you can. We’re sure these will be selling out fast.
