Published Mar 04, 2010A little over a month after giving the heads-up on their new album, the National have announced the release date and title of their highly anticipated Boxer follow-up. Via a newly launched site, the Brooklyn band revealed the record will be out May 11 on 4AD and come bearing the title High Violet (the new site's URL is www.highviolet.com).
