The National Announce “Guilty Party” Single + Throw A Guilty Party In Hudson, NY

Today, The National have released the single “Guilty Party” off their forthcoming album, Sleep Well Beast out September 8th on 4AD. Sleep Well Beast was produced by Aaron Dessner with co-production by Bryce Dessner and Matt Berninger and recorded at Aaron’s Hudson Valley, NY studio, Long Pond. To celebrate the forthcoming album the band will be throwing a Guilty Party at Basilica Hudson on July 14th and 15th. The collaborative concert will be performed in the round and will feature Buke & Gase, Nadia Sirota, Mouse on Mars, Sō Percussion and more. The band has released 700 tickets for each night and they’re now available for purchase here with a portion of ticket sales benefiting Basilica Hudson. Each guest attending the show will receive a “Guilty Party” 7 inch double “A” split with “The System Only Dreams In Total Darkness.” Beer will be provided by Mikkeller.

Video artist Casey Reas will be contributing live projection mapping for the event. Reas also directed the music video for the single, “Guilty Party.” “The video is a dream about memory and the degradation of memory; it’s about distance in time and space,” says Reas. “Time moves forward, but then backward as memory. The image of the two-faced Roman god Janus, who can look into the past and future, is the core visual language.”

Highlights include Forest Hills Stadium in New York on October 6th, The Hollywood Bowl on October 11th and multiple night residencies in more than 10 cities across Europe and North America. Every ticket for previously announced shows in North America includes a digital copy of Sleep Well Beast delivered on September 8th.
