The National to release ‘Boxer: Live in Brussels’, announce world tour

To celebrate the 10-year anniversary of their acclaimed album Boxer, The National performed the record from beginning to end at a very special show in Brussels, Belgium on November 9th, 2017. The vinyl was released exclusively on Record Store Day, which sold out immediately. Now, on Friday 13th July, the live LP will be released digitally and on CD.

Released in 2007, Boxer received widespread critical acclaim and landed the band in the Billboard Top 200 for the first in their career. The album went on to sell over 430,000 copies in the U.S. alone. The track ‘Fake Empire’ was used widely by Barack Obama throughout his presidential campaign the following year.
