The National’s upcoming album Trouble Will Find Me will be released on Tuesday 21st May and boasts contributors including Arcade Fire, Sufjan Stevens, St Vincent and Sharon Von Etten.
We saw them at Sunset Sounds (rest in peace…) for what was an incredible live performance, where it pissed down from a great height. Berninger and his crew were undettered, delivering one of the greatest performances I’ve seen. I hugged him in the crowd. It was awesome.
Definitely get in for this one, as it’s looking like it may be a one off.
