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

Jack White Tour 2012

After releasing the first single “Love Interruption” earlier this week from his upcoming album, Blunderbuss, Jack White has now confirmed his first three tour dates for 2012. First, he will appear at Hangout Music Fest in Gulf Shore, AL on May 18th, followed by Sasquatch Festival in George, WA on May 26th, and then at Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend in London on June 22nd-23rd.

Since stepping back from the spotlight with the Dead Weather, we wonder if White will want to endure a long grinding tour as the front piece. What do you think?

And if you haven’t yet heard, you can preview some of White’s new material – listen to “Love Interruption” from Blunderbuss below:

Die Antwoord release a new video for "I Fink U Freeky"

Die Antwoord just released the new video for “I Fink U Freeky,” a week ahead of the release of TEN$ION on February 7th, 2012. By now, Die Antwoord videos should come with a big neon sign that says “WARNING! Major freaky steez ahead!!,” because if you expected anything other than rats crawling around on Yolandi Visser’s body while she raps about how freeky U R, you don’t know what this group’s all about. Which is to say: this is probably NSFW, and definitely not safe for the easily squeamed.

Watch the video for “I Fink U Freeky”:

Following their album’s Feb. 7th release date, they’ll jump out on a month-long North American tour. That includes an appearance at Noise Pop 2012 in San Francisco, where we picked them as our Wednesday show of choice in our daily guide to the festival.

02/09/12 – Philadelphia, PA – Trocadero Theatre
