The National to release new album, High Violet, in May

The National will have a new record out May 11 via 4AD. High Violet is the band’s fifth LP and, yes, they’re embarking on a spring tour in support. Frontman Matt Berninger talked about the new album with a popular music website that shall remain nameless. You see, we’re all about high-quality content here at TMT, and we hate to direct you to sanctimonious websites that reject witty news writers who injects stories with irreverence and color and still sustain their readers’ attention through meandering 66 word-long sentences with esoteric patois found with five-second searches on thesaurus.com…

But, Ryan, if you’re still reading, I’m still available!
