The National are an American indie rock band from Cincinnati, Ohio, featuring Matt Berninger, who’s accompanied by two sets of brothers, guitarists Aaron and Bryce Dessner, and bassist Scott and drummer Bryan Devendorf.
Formed in 1999, the band have released seven albums across their career. Their self-titled debut album, was released in 2001, but it was 2010’s ‘High Violet’, which would gain them greater commercial success, reaching #3 in the Billboard 200. 2013’s ‘Trouble Will Find Me’, matched this success, and gained them a Grammy Award nomination for Best Alternative Album. The band are set to release their latest album, ‘Sleep Well Beast’, in 2017.
The band have headlined their own shows and tours across the world, including shows at London’s O2 Arena, and Dublin’s Iveagh Gardens and have performed at festivals such as Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds, Wireless, Oxegen and T in the Park.
The band are currently touring 'Sleep Well Beast', and had a full run of sold out shows on the UK leg. They are about to embark across North America and Australia, then New Zealand early in 2018, before returning to North America later on.
In addition, The National have announced two day long events in Dublin full of special guests in June next year soon after they play All Points East Presents in Victoria Park, London, where they'll be supported by The War on Drugs, Future Islands, Warpaint, The Districts, and more. They also play Best Kept Secret Festival in the Netherlands too. Catch them live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.

They couldn't have played any better! They played all my favourites and the visuals were pretty awesome too. The emotions really come out in their songs and the audience were appreciative but quite reserved, perhaps due to the midtempo nature of most of their tracks. I can't recommend seeing them live enough though. Even if you just like the odd song, their show will blow you away.
