The guys from The National are ready, ready to make 2013 a memorable year. The time has come for the release of a brand new album, and a big tour to support the new tunes. The announcement became official today as the band let fans know when to expect the new record, and added tour dates to one we already knew about here in Cincinnati at Bunbury Music Festival.
The new record is scheduled for May, and the tour kicks off during the same month at a show in Ithaca, New York on the 16th at The State Theatre before a big show at the new Barclays Center in the bands current hometown, Brooklyn. The tour then stretches through the midwest a bit and then the east coast and back to our neck of the woods for a show in Columbus, Ohio on June 15th.
The band heads to Europe then and comes back home for a headlining spot at the Bunbury Music Festival on July 14th here in Cincinnati.
