The National released their excellent new album, Sleep Well Beast, last September via 4AD. It was our Album of the Week and #7 on our Top 100 Albums of 2017 list. Now the band has announced some more tour dates for this spring. Big Thief is set to support all dates (their latest album, Capacity, also made our Top 100). Check out the dates below.

In December The National announced the inaugural music festival "Homecoming in Association with MusicNOW," which is curated by the band and will take place in the band's hometown of Cincinnati on April 28 and 29, 2018 (but will start the night of April 27). The National will perform two unique shows on different nights. Joining them will be Father John Misty, Julien Baker, Future Islands, Feist, The Breeders, Alvvays, Moses Sumney, Big Thief, Lord Huron, Mouse on Mars, and more, with others to still be announced. The event will be centered at two stages in the city's Smale Park, but will also encompass venues throughout the city. The National will perform each night, alongside 20 other artists. The festival will also feature "special guests, city-wide exhibitions, surprises and more." MusicNow was founded by The National's Bryce Dessner and has been going for 13 years.
