The National unveil new song 'Demons' - listen
The National have revealed their new song 'Demons', the first track to be taken from their forthcoming new album 'Trouble Will Find Me' - scroll down to watch the video for it.

Meanwhile, footage of The National performing six new songs in Berlin last week has emerged online. The band performed an outdoor gig, playing live in the grounds of the Michelburger Hotel and performed new songs including 'Heavenfaced', 'Fireproof', and 'Graceless', all of which were filmed and can be seen on Consequence of Sound. Other new songs The National have been playing live recently include 'I Should Live in Salt', 'Humiliation', and 'I Need My Girl'.

Speaking to NME about the new album recently, The National frontman Matt Berninger revealed that a preoccupation with death informed the band's 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. Bands spend a lot of time in vans. You go to sleep knowing you're on a coach that has to get from France to Germany in 10 hours and you wonder, 'What if I never wake up? I have a daughter. What'll happen to her if something happens to me?'"

The band, also announced last week that they will play three UK shows in December including a massive London show at Alexandra Palace.

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

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