The National may be the best band that people in the mainstream have never heard of. Formed in Cincinnati, Ohio, the band brought its roots-y Midwestern sensibility to Brooklyn where they perfected their alt-country meets new wave sound. Their lyrics reek of Americana, not the trumped up propaganda of blue jeans and apple pie, but the dark underbelly of hidden agendas, bittersweet memories and things gone wrong.
Part Springsteen, part Joy Division, The National forged their own unique sound on the backs of poignant ballads and cathartic rockers about the secret lives people lead. Lead singer Matt Berninger’s deep baritone anchors the swirling layers of guitars, horns, strings and Bryan Devendorf’s stunning percussion that have made The National’s albums so adored by so many.
After developing the blueprint for their sound on their self-titled debut and sophomore effort, Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers, the band scored a stunning three-punch combination with Alligator, Boxer and High Violet which propelled them to the top of critics’ best album lists. Not only are their albums solid but The National tour dates are a sight to behold, with Berninger often drinking a bottle of wine on stage and storming the audience for big songs like Mr. November. The National tickets for the High Violet tour have sold out at big venues like Radio City and the band ‘s popularity is surging to the point where they’ll be mainstream soon enough. Get in on their dirty little secret now with National concert tickets.
