In addition to this announcement, The National will share their D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus-directed film, The National – ‘High Violet’ Live From Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), shot May 10th, 2010, the night before the release of the album. You can check the performance on the band’s YouTube channel starting at 5:00 PM ET.
The National recently announced that all profits from their webstore and fan club enrollment will be directed to subsidizing the lost wages for their twelve crew members until the end of this crisis.
“Our crew are the lifeblood of our touring operation and have become family through the many years we’ve worked together,” the band said in a statement. “As uncertainty looms over the state of the live concert industry, we will direct all profits from merch sales through our webstore, new Cherry Tree fan club enrollments, and sales from the Cherry Tree members-only store to support our crew members throughout this crisis to the best of our ability.”
