The Shins will be hitting up a number of cities in the U.S. in support of their fourth studio album, Port Of Morrow, due on March 20th. Aside from previously announced gigs at Coachella and Sasquatch, James Mercer and his gang of highly trained backers will also be visiting SLC, St. Louis, and Detroit. Don’t be surprised to see the band on the lineup when Bonnaroo is announced, either.
The band also has a new song from Port Of Morrow streaming below (via Record Store Day), titled “September.” This song will also back the “Simple Song” single that is due next week and is a throw back to the Chutes Too Narrow ballads that many Shins fans love. Check it out after the tour dates.
