The Shins In On Current TV Experiment, Announce Album Release Date
By: Spacelab Research Staff The Shins have announced a release date for their long-awaited new release. It's to be titled Wincing The Night Away, and will be released on January 23rd, 2007, on Sub Pop Records.
The band appears ready to release the album right now, but has to wait, saying, "Trust us if we had our way it would be out next week, but "The Man" has seen fit to do otherwise. The good folks at Sub Pop have scheduled this like a finely tuned machine, and we have all the confidence in the world that January is the magic month for a reason. We are excited."
Wincing The Night Away is the follow-up to the band's 2003 release Chutes To Narrow, which broke the Albequerque, New Mexico band out on the national and international scene with stand-out tracks like So Says I and New Slang.
Will the new album change your life? Maybe... Perhaps more immediate is the Austin City Limits project the band is undertaking with Current TV to have people record video of their performance, which will be compiled into a video and broadcast on Current TV.
