The National unveil trailer for 'Mistaken For Strangers' tour documentary – watch

The band also add two extra dates their UK and Ireland tour this November

The National have unveiled the trailer for Mistaken For Strangers, a documentary film about the band on the road.

Click above to watch the clip. The film will receive its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York on April 17.

The band will play live following the screening of the film, which was directed by Tom Berninger, brother of the band's frontman Matt Berninger.

Matt Berninger produced the film alongside Carin Besser and Craig Charland, and it will open up the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival, which runs until April 28.

Matt Berninger said of the movie: "I was happy to give my brother whatever access he needed. I just didn’t expect this movie to include shower scenes."

Tom Berninger added: "When my brother asked me along on tour as a roadie, I thought I might as well bring a camera to film the experience. What started as a pretty modest tour documentary has, over the last two and a half years, grown into something much more personal, and hopefully more entertaining."

The National recently revealed their new song 'Demons', the first track to be taken from their forthcoming new album 'Trouble Will Find Me', which is set for release on May 20.

Speaking to NME about the new album, Matt Berninger revealed that a preoccupation with death informed the new material.

"It's a record about getting older, and all the fascinations and headaches that go with that," he said. "But it's not grim, honestly! It's actually pretty fun."

The band will be playing extra shows at London's Alexandra Palace on November 14 after the first date on November 13 sold out and also at Manchester O2 Apollo on November 12 after the November 11 date sold out.

The National's UK and Irish tour dates are as follows:

Belfast Odyssey Arena (November 9)
Dublin O2 Arena (10)
Manchester O2 Apollo (11, 12)
London Alexandra Palace (13, 14)
