What did you do with your Sunday afternoon? Maybe you went to a show. Maybe you listened to some records. Maybe you watched a basketball game or enjoyed some time in the sun. If you’re in The National you spent your Sunday afternoon playing the same song over and over again for six hours at the MoMA PS1 in Long Island City. What song did they choose to play over and over? “Sorrow.” Typical lazy Sunday afternoon stuff. Here’s a video of the band doing its thing:
 

 
Whoa. Do those guys know how to party or what? For those of you who prefer non-”Sorrow” National songs, you’re in luck. The Brooklyn mope-rock band has added tour dates to its already busy schedule, including late summer and early fall stops with Daughter and Frightened Rabbit. The tour is in support of the band’s upcoming record, Trouble Will Find Me. Check out those dates and listen to the record’s single “Don’t Swallow The Cap” below. Or listen to it for six hours if you want the real National experience.
