Time Out says

Armed with a surplus of achingly melancholy songs, two pairs of brothers and the haunting baritone of singer Matt Berninger, Brooklyn-via-Ohio rockers the National have become one of the biggest rock bands in the world. After headlining Lollapalooza last summer, the group returns in support of its moody new album, I Am Easy To Find, which was created as a companion-piece of sorts to a black and white film by director Mike Mills (best know for his 2016 dramedy, 20th Century Women). The record features vocals from David Bowie bandmate Gail Ann Dorsey, Sharon Van Etten and Kate Stables of This Is The Kit, as well as choir and string arrangements that lend each track an appropriately cinematic feel. Canadian indie-pop act (responsible for the extremely catchy single "Archie, Marry Me") Alvvays open the show.
