I've been foiled by pitchfork and their misleading headlines yet again... Well I suppose this was more my fault as the article did exactly as the headline promised, just wasn't what I had wanted!
The National are extending their tour in the wake of the release of album number 5. Unfortunately it is just more American dates that have been added. Outside the US, it is still just one in the UK, one in Germany and the support slot at the Pavement gig in Paris (how good a show would that be?)
I'm still hoping for an Irish date. Surely there'd be enough interest here? Come on lads!
With any luck something might be announced...
Until then check out this gorgeous acoustic version of "Slow Show"
