The Shins' debut, Oh, Inverted World, turns 21 this year, and to celebrate the band is heading on the road to play the iconic album in its entirety. The trek will be the indie heavyweights' first tour in nearly five years.

“Everything was so tongue-in-cheek in the indie world of the ’90s,” band leader James Mercer said in a statement. “I remember feeling a longing for some sort of romance in music again, something earnest, like a real attempt at some emotional language.” 

In addition to playing Oh, Inverted World in full, The Shins' setlist will also include "a nightly rotation of additional fan favorites and deep cuts." The tour kicks off July 12 in San Francisco and end in Portland, Oregon on September 16.

The Shins released a single called "The Great Divide" in 2020; however, haven't released a full album since 2017's Heartworms.

Tickets go on sale May 20; however, fans can register for presale access here. See the full list of tour dates below.
