Before arriving in the states, the band will head out on a overseas trek in Japan, Australia, and New Zealand. It will be supported by Phoebe Bridgers, who recently teamed up with frontman Matt Berninger for “Walking on a String,” from Between Two Ferns: The Movie — as well as a cover of Simon and Garfunkel’s “7 O’Clock News/Silent Night” with Fiona Apple.
The band will kick off its North American leg on July 15th, performing in Shelburne, Vermont, with Dacus. It will then hit Vienna, Virginia, with Jacklin on July 29th, and New Haven, Connecticut, with Van Etten on July 30th. The tour wraps up in Cooperstown, New York, on August 1st.
The National released their eighth LP, I Am Easy to Find, last year. Berninger is currently working on his debut solo album, Serpentine Prison, produced and arranged by Booker T. Jones. He’ll join Bridgers at the 2020 Tibet House Concert at Carnegie Hall in New York on February 26th.
Tickets go on sale Friday, February 21st.
