The Shins have added a September 25 show at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom to their current run of intimate club appearances and festival headline slots. So better get tickets ASAP since this show is this Sunday! The tour–the band’s first since May 2009–began August 8 in Eugene OR and will conclude October 15 at the DeLuna Festival in Pensacola FL.
James Mercer has been joined on these dates by a Shins lineup consisting of Yuuki Matthews (bass), Jessica Dobson (guitar), Richard Swift (keyboards) and Joe Plummer (drums). The setlist has previewed material from the long awaited fourth Shins album, which Mercer will complete following the tour. Due out next year on Aural Apothecary/Columbia, the new album will be the band’s first since 2007’s Grammy-nominated gold-certified Wincing The Night Away.
