New National teaser video marketing item


#101

The lady from Buke & Gase is singing on one of the tracks, I approve


#102

Yeah I’ve not heard anything yet either, does it work differently if you preorder the album?

They have a time you’ve got to have signed up by so maybe they’ll send out the presale code then


#103

I preordered and haven’t had a code yet either, so assume it’s later.


#104

I just got emailed a code from songkick for the pre-sale, without ordering the album.


#105

I just got my presale code through & I’d not preordered


#106

song’s nothing special but it’s not bad. have never got round to seeing them live so will probably get a ticket for the tour. hope they don’t play too much from Trouble Will Find Me cos it’s dull as fuck.


#107

Yeah maybe…weirdly enough I got a code earlier today, but my friend who actually bought the album has heard nothing yet…so hopefully your theory is correct


#108

Pah, in the songkick queue for tickets at 10:00:01 and all advance tickets (other than single seats) reserved by the time I had the option to select at 10:01.

Fucking joke trying to buy tickets for anything these days.


#109

Ah fuck :frowning:

I managed two tickets for my birthday - 27th - which I’m thrilled about. Similarly was on at literally 10am and went immediately into queue. I guess they’re smaller venues than usual.


#110

Not a fan of that smug ticketing system.


#111

I’ll try again on friday I guess. Got lucky with Arcade Fire & Interpol presales so you win some you lose some I suppose.

Last saw them on the High Violet tour & don’t remember it being hard to get tickets then. Thought with playing multiple dates it might ease the crush. Good to hear some folks got through.


#112

Which gig were you trying for? There seem to be quite a few with tickets available still.


#113

Was trying for either of the Manchester dates. Anywhere else would have been too far to travel with trying to arrange babysitting unfortunately.


#114

Ah, right. I think I was mistaken anyway. They say they have tickets available, but when you click through they are all gone.


#115

Got a couple for the Saturday at Manchester. £78.50. Ouch.


#116

Got my two for Saturday at Manchester - excited!


#117

Yeah. I’m not surprised the Manchester dates went fast…two weekend dates in the only non-London shows in England. I also didn’t get through (though I felt really annoyed: I couldn’t get anywhere on my laptop for 5 minutes…tried my mobile just to see and got straight through. By then it was far too late…but I can’t work out why I was denied initially).

Do we reckon there are more tickets reserved for general sale? Not that I’m particularly looking forward to negotiating that at all.

Finally…they really need to re-evaluate their popularity in the UK.


#118

Yeah - I got lucky but it seems crazy they’re playing the Apollo in London this time when they were at the (what, three-four times larger) Alexandra Palace last time. They did at least a couple of nights then as well, so there were way more tickets available.


#119

Yeah, had false hopes raised by that menu a few times. See there are still tickets for Oslo, that would have been a great excuse for a weekend getaway.

Mutual commiserations @wonton. General sale friday by the look of things, so free up some time in your diary in the morning!


#120

Already made sure I have absolutely no distractions at that time. I’ve not seen The National before, despite a ten-year long obsession now.
