The National Started Out As An Excuse To Drink Beer

The National

The National guitarist Aaron Dessner tells CNN the band have had to be persistent and patient to get where they are today. “When the band started in 1999, it was not an ambitious idea. It was very casual. It was almost just an excuse to drink beer on the weekends… Nobody ever thought – to be completely honest, we weren’t trying to be successful,” Dessner explained. “I really didn’t think we had it in us to become a big band. It was just kind of like we got together for fun. And then, those first recordings we made, we were shocked at the chemistry, and we were like, ‘Whoa, this is kind of cool.'”

The National Perform New Material On CBC Q

The National were in Studio Q recently to perform a couple of songs and to talk about the success with their past two albums ‘Alligator’ and ‘Boxer’. The Brooklyn-based indie rock group also performed a new yet to be named song from their forthcoming album. Watch it via YouTube below.
