The Shins will tour the United States in 2012.

The Shins teased some 2012 tour dates on the heels of locking up a featured spot at Coachella 2012, and now the momentum keeps rolling. They’ve tacked on dates in May and June, and they’ll get as far as Ohio in a Midwestern stint. East Coast: no love for you guys yet, but these arena tours tend to roll out slowly so you may catch some good news regarding summer Shins concerts in the coming weeks.

The Shins also debuted “September,” a B-side to “Simple Song” with a typographic video which superimposes lyrics and drawings onto a spinning record. Watch the video and check out The Shins’ tour dates below.

4/13/12 – Las Vegas, NV – Cosmopolitan Of Las Vegas – The Pool
4/22/12 – Santa Cruz, CA – Civic Auditorium
