Live on Letterman - The Shins

About the Band:
The Shins are an American indie rock band founded and fronted by vocalist and multi-instrumentalist James Mercer, who began the band in Albuquerque, New Mexico as a side project. The Shins gained popularity throughout the early ‘00s, paving the way for a resurgence in indie rock and cementing the band’s reputation as the new wave of rock music. After appearances on television shows and movie soundtracks, the band became exposed to a larger audience and, in 2008, The Shins’ third album, Wincing the Night Away, was nominated for a GRAMMY® Award for Best Alternative Album.

The Shins’ current lineup consists of Mercer, singer/songwriter Richard Swift, Modest Mouse drummer Joe Plummer, Yuuki Matthews of Crystal Skulls and Jessica Dobson. The band is embarking on a tour this spring, spending March in Europe and playing the United States and several North American festivals from April through June.
