Agora Theatre to host indie darlings The Shins

Cleveland’s Agora Theatre will host The Shins at 8 p.m. on Saturday, July 29. The Grammy nominated indie rock darlings will be joined by special guest Tennis.

The Shins are expected to showcase material from their fifth studio long-player, Heartworms. The 11-track album, released back in March through Aural Apothecary and Columbia Records, was produced by the band’s own frontman James Mercer. Heartworms debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and has so far produced three singles: “Dead Alive,” “Name for You,” and “Half a Million.”

It’s been 5 years since the release of The Shins fourth full-length, Port of Morrow. The album, which was released in March 2012, featured the singles “Simple Song” and “It’s Only Life.”

Wincing the Night Away, The Shins’ third LP, celebrated its 10th anniversary earlier this year. Released in January 2007, the album gave birth to three singles: “Phantom Limb,” “Australia,” and “Turn on Me.” It later earned a Grammy Award nomination for Best Alternative Music Album.

Supporting The Shins will be Tennis, an atmospheric indie pop husband-and-wife duo. Tennis is promoting their fourth full-length, Yours Conditionally, which emerged back in March on their own record label, Mutually Detrimental. The album, anchored by lead single "In the Morning I'll Be Better," also includes stand-out tracks like “Please Don’t Ruin This for Me,” “My Emotions Are Blinding,” and “Baby Don’t Believe.”
