The National to play Providence in June

, Staff

The National’s summer schedule in support of their forthcoming album, Trouble Will Find Me continues to take ship with the announcement of a new show in Rhode Island. The indie rock favorites will play Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel in Providence on Tuesday, June 4. Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through eTix for $30 and $37.50.

Trouble Will Find Me, the band’s sixth studio effort and follow-up to 2010’s High Violet, is scheduled to hit stores on May 20. Recorded at Clubhouse in Rhinebeck, New York, the album was self-produced and mixed by Craig Silvey with additional mixing from Peter Katis and Marcus Paquin. It includes guest collaborators St. Vincent, Sharon Van Etten, Sufjan Stevens, Nona Marie Invie (of Dark Dark Dark) and Richard Reed Parry (of Arcade Fire).

“The songs on one level are our most complex, and on another they’re our most simple and human,” said guitarist Aaron Dessner in a press release. “It just feels like we’ve embraced the chemistry we have.”

Earlier this month at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York, the documentary “Mistaken For Stranger” premiered. The film, directed by Tom Berninger (lead singer Matt Berninger’s younger brother), follows The National on its biggest tour to date.

The Providence show will follow the band’s headlining set at the inaugural Boston Calling Festival on Sunday, May 26. The lineup for the two-day festival at City Hall Plaza was curated by Dessner and features fun., The Shins, Of Monsters and Men, Matt and Kim, Young the Giant, Andrew Bird and more.
