While on-site at Lollapalooza 2010, the Recording Academy got the unique opportunity to meet Brooklyn-by-way-of-Ohio indie rockers the National.
Bass and guitar player Scott Devendorf came by our tent and talked about their work with the Red Hot Organization, how exciting it was to be involved in President Obama’s election campaign, and his thoughts on album leaks. He also gave some insight on thier desire to offer fans a variety of music mediums.
In May 2010 the National released thier fifth studio album, High Violet, to widespread critical and fan acclaim. The band will spend the fall and early winter touring the Unites States and Europe.
