The National released their excellent new album, Sleep Well Beast, back in September via 4AD. It was our Album of the Week. Now they have shared a wonderful video for "Dark Side of the Gym." It features two dancers in a school gym, covered in balloons and likely post a school dance. Justin Peck not only directed and choreographed the video, he also stars in it alongside Patricia Delgado. Peck is a NYC Ballet Resident Choreographer and soloist and Delgado is a former Miami City Ballet mentor and Principal dancer. Former Miami City Ballet dancer and current dance filmmaker Ezra Hurwitz executive produced the video. Watch it below, followed by the band's upcoming tour dates.

Read our recent interview with The National on Sleep Well Beast.

Previously the band shared videos for the album's five singles, "The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness," "Guilty Party," "Carin at the Liquor Store," "I'll Still Destroy You," and "Day I Die."

The National's Aaron Dessner produced Sleep Well Beast, with additional co-production by his brother Bryce Dessner and frontman Matt Berninger. It was recorded at Aaron Dessner's Long Pond studio in Hudson Valley, New York. Additional sessions took place in Berlin, Paris, and Los Angeles. Peter Katis mixed the album.

Nice post. I appreciate the tips. My training routine is remarkably similar to yours, although I expect I’m slogging along much more slowly than you

Not all are true. Everyone has their own way of thinking but I think they have to reconsider. I like to argue for the most accurate results.
