    The National and Dirty Projectors are both headed to Bonnaroo this June, so they’ve decided to cut down on gas money and tour together in the days leading up to the festival. Their joint tour begins June 6th in Columbia, MD and also includes shows in Philadelphia, Raleigh, and Pittsburgh. Check out both bands’ full tour dockets below.

    Update: The National have also announced the release of their new album, which will surface in May through 4AD. It serves as the followup to 2010’s CoS Top Star-earning High Violet.

    While it hasn’t yet been announced, The National will presumably have a new album out sometime this summer and will probably play some of those new songs while on the road. The Projectors, on the other hand, released Swing Lo Magellan last year to universal acclaim, and have just released a new track called “There’s a Fire”, which was previously only available as a limited-edition B-Side. You can also take a listen to the song below.
