The National will headline Brooklyn's Barclays Center in June.

The National Barclays Center Concert 6/5/2013

Only a few months old, and already The Barclays Center has laid claim to the title of Hottest Venue (or at least Most-Hyped) across all five boroughs. From Jay-Z’s inaugural residency, to the grand homecoming of Barbra Streisand, to Leonard Cohen’s marathon set, Atlantic Ave. is fast becoming the most popular host of heavyweight talent (sorry, Manhattan). The most recent group to sign up for headlining duty will only add to the arena’s prestige: The National.

Yesterday (1/15), the Ohio rockers revealed their plans to perform one concert on June 5. Pitchfork speculates the high-profile gig will in fact turn out to be a promotional performance in support of a new album. Not one member of the band has said anything to confirm the rumor… though no one’s issued a denial, either. If true, the record would be The National’s sixth studio release, and the followup to their immensely satisfyng foray into neurotic melancholia, High Violet. In terms of showcasing new material, the Barclays Center could be the band’s outlet of choice… especially if they’re considering layering a rap (Jay-Z cameo?) verse or two over their disconsolate tracks.

Actually, if we’re talking masochistic introspection, Kanye might be the better choice.

Tickets to The National’s Barclays Center show aren’t available yet, but we’ll be sure to post discount links once seats start to sell!
