The Shins Announce Two Splendour Side Shows

In the event that a sojourn to Byron Bay is not on the cards for you The Shins have announced two massive side shows on top of their headlining spot on the Splendour In The Grass bill to accommodate the needs of their many Australian fans.

The tour marks the Portland pop outfit’s fifth visit to our shores since 2003, and this time the band are taking their Sub Pop record mates, Melbourne quartet Husky, along for the show. Tickets are on sale next week so mark your calendar accordingly.
