The National will be the musical guest on Saturday Night Live on March 8.
Poster has been released for the documentary Mistaken For Strangers, directed by Tom Berninger, brother of THE NATIONAL lead singer Matt Berninger. The film is an interesting rumination on the nature of brotherhood and will see theatrical and on demand release on March 28.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, the big Grammy winners last night, once did a remix of The National’s tune Fake Empire. It’s a bonus track on the VS Redux release.
Mrs. Playmixt (aka neckgear) walked down the aisle to this tune. We chose it for both its jubilant exuberance and stately nature.

The National’s Matt Berninger and NPR’s Audie Cornish discuss the band’s new album (‘Trouble Will Find Me’), being in a band of brothers, how his own brother inspired “I Should Live in Salt,” and his own sheepish attitude toward the band’s recent success.
