The national return to the road!
Grammy-winning icons of indie rock The National have declared 2023 theirs, announcing a brand new tour. Not only that they are set to release their new album 'First Two Pages of Frankenstein' in April this year! Expect to hear new hits along with fan favorites! The past couple of years have given The National time for reflection, and aim for this tour to be full of music, light and a celebration of reunion!
The National hail from the bustling city of Cincinnati, Ohio where they formed back in the heady days of 1999. Eight albums in 17 years is pretty reclusive as far as indie bands go, but if their dark (and often intense) lyrics, and the attention to detail paid to every instrument in their melodies is anything to go by, The National are far more interested in quality over quantity. And it shows - 2013's Trouble Will Find Me debuted top of the charts not just in the USA, but in Canada and the UK as well, and garnered the band their first Grammy nomination.
