Trouble Will Find Me is the sixth studio album by American indie rock band The National, released in May 2013 via 4AD Records.

The National, for those who are just coming in, is comprised of two sets of brothers - Bryce and Aaron Dessner, Scott and Bryan Devendorf - and Matt Berninger (plus shadow member Padma Newsom). 

On first spin, Trouble Will Find Me, sounds a lot like 2010's warm, wistful, and weary High Violet. Where Violet was built on a foundation of suburban despondency and casual, middle class self-destruction (and skilfully juggled melodrama and dark comedy), Trouble Will Find Me feels mired in regret, seeking refuge in the arms of old friends and lost lovers. Sounding for all the world like a single cube of ice lazily swirling about a recently drained tumbler of single malt scotch, a notion best intoned on early album standout "Demons", which casually announces "I am secretly in love with everyone I grew up with."

Nostalgia can arrive in waves, and Trouble Will Find Me's best moments - the propulsive "Don't Swallow The Cap" and the one-two sucker punch of pre-set closers "Humiliation" and "Pink Rabbits" - find Matt Berninger and his laconic baritone nervously pacing the deck of a sinking ship while simultaneously trying to find his sea legs as his bandmates constantly pull the rug out from under him with familiar rhythms and melodies that hide countless trap doors.

It's that very familiarity that fuels the ire of many of the band's detractors, especially those who consider them to be a slightly creepier, American Coldplay, and while there is definitely an intangible, Mad Men sense of unease permeating Trouble Will Find Me, one could hardly use the words dangerous or forward-thinking when dissecting its myriad parts. That said, this is the band that performed a chilling rendition of the George R.R. Martin-penned "Rains Of Castamere" over the closing credits of the season two finale of Game of Thrones.

For better or for worse, they perfected their sound the last time around, so it’s hard to fault them for sticking so close to the fire. 

Check out the tracks: “Demons”; “Don’t Swallow The Cap”; “Graceless”; “Sea Of Love” and “I Need My Girl”.

This double LP housed in a gatefold sleeve with printed inner sleeves and digital download is pressed in the UK on black vinyl.
