Sub Pop pop-rockers The Shins have finally confirmed a release date for their much-anticipated third LP, Wincing The Night Away.
Anyone now wanting to comment that it'll be the band's fourth album should shut it. I'm not counting that Flake Music thing. Nope, doesn't count. So shush it.
Wincing The Night Away will be available in the UK on January 22 - US fans will have to wait an extra day (why do they release records on a Tuesday?). The band posted the following on theie website:
“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.”
