The National Went InterNational
The famous indie rock band The National is back in Zagreb this Sunday, November the 14th. This will be their third time in Zagreb and since their first Croatian concert in the club KSET six years ago, that they consider one of the most special concerts in their career, The National grew into one of the biggest indie rock bands in the world. This time, they will swap the charming, but rather small stage of the KSET, with the much bigger one, at the large hall of the "Bocarski dom Zrinjevac".
The National is currently on an international tour, having sold the concerts in London, Paris and Berlin. The album, which was released in May, won them a prestigious Q Award for the best album of the year and "High Violet" soon became one of the highest selling albums in the States. Considering their take-off, next time we'll be listening to them at the stadium! :)
IDM Music represents their both publishing and master rights for the region.
