The Shins announce new album 'Heartworms,' tour dates

Heartworms are no longer just a disease for your pets. It’s also the name of the new album from The Shins.

On Thursday, the iconic indie band announced the release of their fifth album Heartworms, along with several tour dates. The new album will be released on March 10 via Columbia Records and will feature the single “Name For You,” which the band also shared on Thursday. The bouncy tune is the second song they’ve released from the album, along with the previous single “Dead Alive.”

The Shins also revealed the first batch of tour dates in support of the new album. The short run of intimate shows kicks off on March 2 at the El Rey Theatre in their old hometown of Albuquerque, NM and includes a stop at the Fox Theatre in Pomona, CA before wrapping with a pair of shows at the Observatory North Park in San Diego. The Shins will also play a stint of European dates, along with several festivals, including BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! on June 15.
