The National have unveiled a new trailer for their Mistaken For Strangers documentary.

The film, which premiered last year at the Tribeca Film Festival, will open in cinemas in the United States on March 25. Click below to watch the new trailer, which follows the band as frontman Matt Berninger's brother Tom joins them on tour as a roadie.

The National will play the inaugural BBC 6 Music Festival on March 1 at Manchester's Victoria Warehouse. They will also perform alongside Neil Young & Crazy Horse at London's Hyde Park on Saturday July 12.
