The National Playing Today (and more) To Hype New Album

The National have a new album due out this Friday and to celebrate it's release they are playing a few shows including one at the Bowery Ballroom that will broadcast on Sirius XM.

They will also be playing today at the Apple Store in Williamsburg and RtBE could not pick a more perfect location for the band...They just scream Apple Store in Williamsburg to us. We have reviewed the band in the past, and there is a part of us that enjoy the professionalism of their music, but this is a band where we just can't past the front man, the lyrics and the dour mood that Matt Berninger facilitates on record and stage. In it way it reminds us of a straight, American middle class version of Morrissey for this generation...not our cup o'meat...

All that said...they will also be playing the Stephen Colbert Show tomorrow night and various other shows to hype Sleep Well Beast, their new album that is due out Friday. Below is the first single from the disk:
