The National Announce European Tour

In less than a month, The National will embark on their second European tour. They'll mostly be playing in Germany and France, though there is one date in Austria, and a couple UK dates may be added. Keep an eye on our [LINK TO COME]tour page for current routing, and updates.

We are also proud to announce that the band has hooked-up with Chicago's Billions Corporation for US booking. You can find the announcement on their website here. The band is proud to join Billions' diverse roster of artists that includes old standbys like Nick Cave, Aphex Twin, and Steven Malkmus as well as hot young things such as Godspeed You Black Emperor!, The Frames, and Clinic. Expect the band to start hitting the road in the US this September, in support of their new record, Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers.
