The National have announced on Twitter they'll be appearing with President Barack Obama at a rally September 1st in Des Moines, Iowa. "Proud to support @BarackObama again in 2012. We'll be opening for him in Des Moines on Sept 1. Follow @OFA_IA for details. #fourmoreyears," reads the post.

The New York indie-rock band joined Ben Harper at an Obama rally in Wisconsin rally in 2010, performing for a crowd of about 26,500. Last Friday, Kid Rock performed at a campaign fundraiser in Michigan for Paul Ryan, the Republican candidate for vice president.
