The National return to the Mann this summer on September 27 in support of their critically acclaimed new album Sleep Well Beast with special guests Cat Power and Phoebe Bridgers.
There are songs on Sleep Well Beast that are instantly recognizable as the National, but others are much harder to classify. The lyrics are about “trying to come clean about the things you’d rather not,” says Matt. “Some of it’s about marriage, some of it’s about my relationship with Aaron and the band, some of it’s about train tracks and dancing.” Guitar solos appear like never before, yet on some songs, guitars account for only a tiny fraction of the music. “It was important that we genuinely explore new territory and risk falling on our faces, or not make a record at all,” explains Aaron. “This album feels complete to me.”
Tickets are on sale now via Ticketmaster.com, (800) 745-3000, or the Mann Box Office.
