Winter comes to Las Vegas
The band previously recorded a version of ‘Castamere’ for the show back in 2012, which was later covered by Sigur Ros.
Now the score to the hit medieval fantasy show is currently touring with a full choir and orchestra – with Berninger appearing as a guest vocalist in Las Vegas. This comes after System Of A Down frontman Serj Tankian sang the track earlier this week.
Earlier this year, The National debuted a new track at a special protest gig against Donald Trump. The band are expected to release with their new album later this year, with the follow-up to 2013’s acclaimed ‘Trouble Will Find Me‘ expected in the summer.
“We’re playing together in a room, which means we’re jamming more,” frontman Matt Berninger told NME. “But it’s not a jam record at all – the songs are much more like weird, math-y, electronic-y stuff.”
He added: “A lot of songs are going in completely different directions. But that’s a really fun place to be. We’re in the middle of the wilderness, in a rainforest full of really fun noises.”
As for Game Of Thrones, season 7 is coming very soon – and will be hitting screens in July. The producers have confirmed, too, that Ed Sheeran will make a cameo appearance in the show’s seventh season.
The long-running HBO series will return to screens in July for the next eagerly-awaited instalment. A trailer for season seven dropped last week.
