The National, who rocked Big Ears back in March, will be releasing their latest album, High Violet, on May 11. This excellent article appeared in the New York Times the other day which also offered the opportunity to stream tracks early.
Reading through, it brought back memories of a Sunday evening spent at the Tennessee Theatre with the band, listening to these new songs – some still in the formative stages.

The National have another date coming up in Tennessee – in Manchester, to be exact – at the Bonnaroo Arts and Music Festival, June 10 – 13. It’ll be the first appearance for the band after the album is released.
