In conjunction with the Australian tour announcement, The National have today dropped a new release Laugh Track, the surprise second half of a double album which began with First Two Pages Of Frankenstein released in April this year. The sibling records mark albums nine and ten for The National and are a continuing testament to the more than two decades the band have delivered us songs of immense pathos and beauty.

Their lengthy career has led to extraordinary success, including winning a Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album for 2017’s Sleep Well Beast, headlining festivals around the world, offered up classic songs including Bloodbuzz Ohio, Mr November, Fake Empire and I Need My Girl, and working with countless culture-defining artists including collaborations with Bon Iver, Phoebe Bridgers, Taylor Swift, and Sufjan Stevens.

Joining The National for the tour will be one of Indie Folk’s most acclaimed acts, Fleet Foxes. Led by lead singer-songwriter Robin Pecknold, Fleet Foxes have won a legion of fans and garnered critical acclaim for making music full of wonderful orchestrations, and gorgeous melodies that fuse earthy, harmony-rich folk-rock with a sense of lush pop sophistication.

Also last here in 2018, Fleet Foxes will tour Australia for the first time since the release of their 2020 fourth studio album Shore, which earned the band their second Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Music Album, and sweeping praise from MOJO (five stars), Rolling Stone (four stars), and Pitchfork (the fifth consecutive Best New Music), with Rolling Stone calling the album ‘…the most immediately rewarding Fleet Foxes record since their brilliant 2008 debut.’

Opening for all shows will be Australian singer, songwriter, and guitarist Annie Hamilton.
