They’ll rock the house in January

The Shins have just announced plans to perform tracks from their forthcoming album ‘Wincing the Night Away’ live on two late-night American variety shows.

The band will play on ‘Saturday Night Live’ on January 13, and ‘Late Show With David Letterman’ on January 23.

Each week, ‘Saturday Night Live’ features a performance from a notable musical guest and a rotating celebrity host. Actor Jake Gyllenhaal will share the bill with The Shins.
