It has been a hell of a year for The National. Their latest LP Sleep Well Beast was critically acclaimed, their live shows have been a triumph and their output undeniably unique. So it seems fitting to use the end of the year to announce something pretty special.
The band have announced a two-day festival in their hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio. Headlined by the band on both nights the line-up will also have 20 more musical appearances. Scheduled to take place across April 28th and 29th you can find all the information here.
Not only did they announce a mega gig, they also shared the video for the title track of the LP ‘Sleep Well Beast’. The video is a skittish and jumpy affair, mirroring the track, it uses the album artwork as a starting point and jumps around band members in a pixellated rainbow.
Take a look below and ease in to your weekend.
