New Song from The Shins

Fresh from news that they will end their two year hiatus and play their first reunion gig, James Mercer and co played this one which is likely to appear on their next album, due late this year. Having lost keyboardist Marty Crandall and drummer Jesse Sandoval, the band replaced them with Ron Lewis and Joe Plummer from  Modest Mouse respectively, making an indie supergroup of sorts. How exciting!

In a similar way to my love for Belle & Sebastian, I got into The Shins quite late and after they released Wincing the Night Away. Hopefully this new album will come with an Australian tour late this year of early next. Falls Headliners anyone?
