The film goes on general release Stateside next month
The National have unveiled a new trailer for their Mistaken For Strangers documentary.
The film, which premiered last year at the Tribeca Film Festival, will open in cinemas in the United States on March 25. Click above to watch the new trailer, which follows the band as frontman Matt Berninger’s brother Tom joins them on tour as a roadie. Matt produced the film alongside Carin Besser and Craig Charland, and commented: “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 will play the inaugural BBC 6 Music Festival on March 1 at Manchester’s Victoria Warehouse. They will also perform alongside Neil Young and Crazy Horse at a huge outdoor show at London’s Hyde Park on Saturday July 12. They’ll be joined at Barclaycard British Summer Time by special guests Tom Odell, Caitlin Rose, Phosphorescent and Flyte.
