The long-awaited A Skin, A Night film documenting The National recording Boxer, their much-loved but most-difficult album yet, is to see the light of day on May 26th through Beggars Banquet.
The film is described as "a highly unusual documentary replete with behind-the-scenes footage of The National on tour and in the studio."
Accompanying the DVD is The Virginia EP featuring the usual assortment of b-sides, demos, live tracks plus one new studio recording: a cover of Caroline Martin's 'Without Permission'.
The band are to tour the US supporting REM for most of May and June but return to UK and Ireland for these dates:
13-15 Dublin Olympia Theatre
17 Minehead Butlins (EITS ATP)
4 London Hyde Park (Wireless Festival)
13 Kinross T In The Park
17 Brecon Beacons Green Man Festival
