The National - High Violet

We knew it was coming this year, but now it’s been confirmed that High Violet, the hotly anticipated new album by The National will drop on May 11 in the US via 4AD. While the band already has their album release tour schedule pretty much set, before they head out to play those mammoth venues, they’ll be playing two club shows at The Bell House on March 11 and 12 (Buy Tickets). Tickets go on sale for The Bell House shows on Monday, March 8 at noon EST.

UPDATE 2: Yup, tickets went on sale at noon, they seem to be gone already though.

UPDATE 1: I could be wrong about the on sale time, but the shows are definitely happening.

  1. Thank you so much for this…got these tickets. Nice to see them at a smaller venue because Radio Shitty is just way too big and too seated to see The National for my taste
