Brooklyn based indie rock band The National is back with a fifth album, High Violet, to be released this month and featuring 11 tracks of the updated post punk revival sound they’ve built upon since their beginning. Formed in 1999 and gaining recognition with singles “Fake Empire” and “Apartment Story”, the five piece has began their tour in support for their upcoming record, which many are calling their best yet!
KEXP in partnership with 4AD want you to be part of it! We would like to send you and a guest to New York City for an evening with The National! The band will be performing at the Brooklyn Academy of Music on May 15th to promote High Violet, and to benefit The Red Hot Organization in their fight against AIDS.
You’ve only got one week to enter! Don’t miss this chance!
