    Thought I’d make a thread for these new songs they’re playing on this current tour. On the last 3 nights –

    05 June 2016 Free Press Summer Festival Houston, TX, USA
    04 June 2016 Field Trip Music & Arts Festival Toronto, ON, Canada
    03 June 2016 Welcome To Hamilton, ON, Canada

    At the Hamilton gig they played

    Hamilton setlist

    At Field Trip they played

    field trip setlist

    So that’s 4 new songs

    The Day I Die
    Sometimes I Don’t Think
    Hague Blue (For some reason kept thinking this was a GD song?)

    With

    Checking Out / Roman Candle (from previous dates)

    These are the live videos we have so far! Exciting times! I know they’ve said no album this year but these sound great

    The Day I Die (Live)

    Sometimes I Don’t Think/Hague Blue (Live)

    Checking Out/Roman Candle (Live @Treasure Island Music Festival)

    Checking Out/Roman Candle (Live @ The Troubadour)

    No video of Hague Blue yet… Hopefully soon! (I am correct in thinking it’s NOT a Grateful Dead song? Please correct if it is!)

    Why am I dumb at embedding the video? Sorry!

    Think Iris sounds pretty amazing, Kingston outro was very cool like what has been said.

    I felt the same way!! this is huge news! Obviously we know an album is coming eventually and they’ve done some recording but I thought these songs would have created more hype. Very odd..

    Checking Out is incredible, really amazing.
    The Day I Die seems like a loud shouty kinda song that is perfect kinda National. Guitars are fantastic in it and I love one of the videos about where the Dessners join together at the end to play the final section.

    The others I have enjoyed, but definitely not as stand out as those two. Hmm listening again and they’re all great. Iris/Find A Way is really good. like the faster keyboard section. reminds me of radiohead Kid A? Oh god the national are great!!

    Exciting times

    Best part about most of these songs are they have epic outros. The National are the king of the epic outros!

    That’s awesome thanks! Yeah really enjoying these new songs. The album sounds like it could be really great.

    I got to hear Roman Candle at Troubadour back in November… but I think I’m gonna wait until the next release to listen to anything else. I REALLY got my hopes up for a produced version of ‘Rylan’ that never came to be and I don’t want to experience that soul-crushing feeling again, ahahaha.

    BUT, that being said, this version of ‘Rylan’ still warms my heart 🙂
