95bFM Presents: The Shins

It is with great pleasure that Frontier Touring, 95bFM and Undertheradar announce that US indie rock pioneers The Shins are returning to New Zealand for one show at Auckland’s Powerstation November 30.

Based in Portland, Oregon, and formed in 1996, The Shins are a multiple GRAMMY award nominated band. Their debut full length, Oh, Inverted World, caused a seismic shift in the indie rock world upon its release in 2001, singlehandedly ushering in the modern era of the genre. Moved by the strength of verifiably life changing songs like “New Slang”, “Know Your Onion” and “Caring is Creepy,” a generation of artists ditched the previous decade’s lo-fi aesthetic in favour of Oh, Inverted World’s emphasis on melody. 

One of the most significant indie bands of the 21st century, this will be their first show on our shores in ten years.

95bFM Presents: The Shins, Thursday 30 November, the Powerstation.

Tickets on sale September 25 from Ticketmaster.
