Watch: The Shins plot summer UK shows

The band have also shared two new videos for ‘Name For You’.

The Shins released their long-awaited fifth album ‘Heartworms’ last week, and have shared a whole bunch of news to celebrate its release.

The band had previously been announced to play at this year’s Green Man in August, and have now plotted two UK headline shows around the run, in Manchester and Nottingham.

The run follows a London show later this month at Hammersmith Apollo, as part of a short European tour.

James Mercer and co. have also shared two (two!) new videos for ‘Heartworms’ single ‘Name For You’, set to two alternate versions of the track.
