In a video interview the Brooklyn-based rockers discuss their summer tour with R.E.M. and Modest Mouse, and detail Vincent Moon's new film about The Boxer.

Kicking off Coachella early Friday afternoon (April 25) with vodka in hand and parasol overhead, the National’s frontman Matt Berninger and guitarist Aaron Dessner take a minute to chat outside Spin’s tropical Coachella abode.

Watch video footage — powered by Kyte — of the pair discussing their much-anticipated summer tour with R.E.M. and Modest Mouse, as well as A Skin, A Night, French filmmaker Vincent Moon’s “dark, moody” new work chronicling the band’s creation of their acclaimed 2007 opus, Boxer.
