About

With the release of their eighth studio album I Am Easy To Find, The National has announced their final UK live dates for 2019.

The band will be arriving at Motorpoint Arena Nottingham on Tuesday 10 December.

Their new album titled I Am Easy To Find is released on Friday 17 May, and is the band's eighth studio album and the follow-up to Grammy-award winning release Sleep Well Beast. A companion short film with the same name accompanies, directed by Academy Award-nominated director Mike Mills and starring actress Alicia Vikander.

The National have established themselves as mainstays of arenas and festivals with sold-out performances and headlining slots around the world. Their most recent album Sleep Well Beast scored #1s in the UK, Ireland, Portugal and Canada. In addition, they achieved their highest chart position ever in a total of eleven countries including #2 on the US Billboard Top 200.

The National consists of Matt Berninger (vocals) fronting two pairs of brothers: Aaron (guitar, bass, piano) and Bryce Dessner (guitar, piano), and Scott (bass, guitar) and Bryan Devendorf (drums).

Both individually and collectively The National's members have been involved in countless artistic, charitable and socio-political pursuits. The group released A Lot of Sorrow documenting their collaboration with installation artist Ragnar Kjartansson, that took place at MOMA's PS1 and saw the band play their song 'Sorrow' for six hours in front of a live audience.

They are behind the Red Hot benefit albums Dark Was The Night and Day Of The Dead, and the compilation boxed set titled 7-Inches for Planned Parenthood. Band members have received a Golden Globe Nomination for work on the score of the 2015 film Revenant, founded or play a major part in MusicNow, Eaux Claires and Haven Festival and Boston Calling, and participated heavily in both Barack Obama Presidential Campaigns, and much more.

The year 2013 also saw the theatrical release of their documentary, Mistaken For Strangers set to the backdrop of the band's 2010 release High Violet. The documentary was chosen to premiere on the opening night of the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival followed by a theatrical release in the US and worldwide distribution. Over their 16-year career the band has sold more than 1.7 million albums in the U.S. alone.
