The National have established themselves as mainstays of arenas and festivals with sold-out performances and headlining slots around the world.

In addition they scored #1's in the UK, Ireland, Portugal and Canada and their highest chart position ever in a total of eleven countries. The National also claimed their first #1 at commercial radio on the Triple-A radio chart with "The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness."The songs off Sleep Well Beast are instantly recognizable as The National, but their sound has evolved and expanded.
