The Shins announce Splendour sideshows
The Shins will be bringing their very lovely selves back to Australia this July as part of Splendour In The Grass, and have just announced headline shows at Festival Hall in Melbourne and the Hordern Pavilion in Sydney.
It’s been a busy start to the year for the Portland based five piece, with the band currently in the midst of an extensive US tour to celebrate the release of Port Of Morrow. The album has been five years in the making, following on from their 2007 LP Wincing The Night Away, and was recorded throughout 2011.
This tour will mark The Shins’ fifth visit to our shores since 2003. Very special guests for both the Melbourne and Sydney shows will be the warm, harmony soaked sounds of Melbourne quartet Husky.
