New National Gigs – From New York To Ohio

03:01 PM Wednesday 2/27/13 | |

In addition to the news about its involvement in the inaugural Boston Calling festival, this week The National told fans it was “very, very happy to be announcing a bunch of U.S. + Canadian tour dates.”  

In a post on its Facebook page the band added, “Oh and also, thought you might like to know that we'll be putting out a new album in May.”

In March you can find The National guitarist Bryce Dessner at Australia’s Adelaide Festival celebrating the New York-based label, Brassland, he co-founded. He’s also taking part in “Planetarium” at the Brooklyn Academy of Music March 21-24 and at Los Angeles’ Disney Concert Hall April 22. The show – a collaborative song cycle written by Dessner, Sufjan Stevens and Nico Muhly – is described as celebrating “the planets with a fantastical stage production of celestial bodies and a giant orb.”

After that, Dessner joins up with the rest of The National for the upcoming tour.
