The National have once again resurfaced to help lend support to President Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. The band’s song “Fake Empire” appeared in a 2008 campaign ad, and in 2010, they opened for Obama in Madison, Wisconsin alongside Ben Harper. Now, according to their Twitter account, the battleground indie band is re-upping their support by opening for the president at a September 1 speech in Des Moines, Iowa.
