The National tickets

The National
The National is an indie rock band formed by friends in Cincinnati, in 1999. The band's lyrics, which have been described as dark, melancholy and difficult to interpret, are written and sung by Matt Berninger. The rest of the band is composed of two pairs of brothers. Aaron, on guitar and keyboard, and his brother Bryce Dessner, who’s also playing the guitar. The rhythm section is based around bass guitarist Scott and drummer Bryan Devendorf . The name of the band was chosen because it "didn't mean anything", but on November 7 the National will show that they can put on a great show at the HMH.

The band’s big breakthrough came with the release of the fourth album ‘Boxer’, but in the meantime the National is ready to release their sixth album ‘Trouble Will Find Me’ in May. According to the band, the sound of the album is more direct and intuitive. Guitarist Aaron Dessner says the ideas of the group would immediately click with each other. “The songs on one level are our most complex, and on another they’re our most simple and human. It just feels like we’ve embraced the chemistry we have.”
