Portland pop-folkies The Shins announce their Australian sideshows following their Splendour slot.
The Shins have lain fallow for a time, but they’re back, led once again by James Mercer, with new album Port Of Morrow.
After being announced for mega-fest Splendour In The Grass, the band have booked their fifth set of Australian dates, bringing with them brilliant locals Husky.
Tickets for the two shows go on sale at 11am next Monday 30 April from Ticketmaster for Melbourne and Ticketek for Sydney.
Check out our chat with Husky below the tourdates, including a beautiful acoustic performance of their new single ‘The Woods’.
