While we all assumed that indie-rock heroes THE NATIONAL will continue their usual release rhythm by unveiling a follow-up to 2013’s Trouble Will Find Me next year we shouldn’t be to sure about it.

Matt Berninger, who is currently on tour with his side project EL VY, now revealed in a Q&A via Facebook, that his main band is likely to return to stages next year but isn’t releasing a new album in 2016. THE NATIONAL have been recording the new LP for a while now and also already performed new material. In a recent update Berninger also said that him and his bandmates recorded 15 songs who are ‘fucking amazing.’ NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION will keep you updated on any news regarding the record.
