    The Shins have finally announced a release date for their new album, Heartworms. The record is set to be released March 10th via Columbia. The LP includes the previously released "Dead Alive", as well as the just unveiled "Name For You".

    Heartworms is the first release from the James Mercer-led band since 2012’s Port of Morrow. Mercer, however, has kept himself busy. As part of Broken Bells, his project with artist-producer Danger Mouse, he released After the Disco — the band’s second full LP. Heartworms is just the fifth LP released by The Shins, who first broke through with Oh, Inverted World in 2001.

    The Shins currently have 11 shows scheduled this year, a number that is likely to rise after the announcement of the forthcoming album. They are currently next set to play January 7th in Seattle. After that, the band will have a nearly two month hiatus until a March 2nd concert in Albuquerque, New Mexico, followed by gigs in Phoenix, Los Angeles, and San Diego. The band will then head to Europe for shows in Paris, London, and Amsterdam, before returning for two more concerts in North Carolina and New York.

    Heartworms tracklist:

    1. Name for You
    2. Painting a Hole
    3. Cherry Hearts
    4. Fantasy Island
    5. Mildenhall
    6. Rubber Ballz
    7. Half a Million
    8. Dead Alive
    9. Heartworms
    10. So Now What
    11. The Fear
