Formed in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1992, originally as a side-project to vocalist, guitarist and songwriter James Mercer's ban Flake Music (1992-1999), The Shins are an American indie rock band. The band gained mainstream attention in 2004, when their single “New Slang” was featured in the film Garden State, leading to major success for the band with their third studio album Wincing the Night Away (2007), which peaked at number two on the Billboard 200 and earned The Shins a Grammy Award nomination. Signing to Columbia Records, Mercer parted ways with the rest of the band, releasing the fourth studio album, Port of Morror, five years later with a new studio line-up. The Shins' fifth album, Heartworms, was released in March 2017.
