The National Expand Tour to Include Montreal, Vancouver

The National Expand Tour to Include Montreal, Vancouver
For those who got all mopey when we reported that the National were playing just a handful of dates surrounding the release of their forthcoming LP, High Violet, here's something to lift your spirits: the band have announced a slew of new dates across North America and beyond, and they're likely to be strolling by your haunt, so long as that haunt is a major city.

The tour that once started in May and ended in June now goes through September, and the band have scheduled dates across North America and Europe, including new dates in Montreal and Vancouver, and a second Toronto date.

The supporting acts will vary depending on the date. Canadians can look forward to the Antlers in Toronto, the Walkmen in Vancouver and the entire Osheaga festival line-up in Montreal.

Of course, the National's new album, High Violet, is still due May 11 across North America on 4AD.
