I love them so much I think I might marry them all, and thus coining the term G.ay Mormon.

Fav songs-
1. Kissing the Lipless
2. Phantom Limb
3. New Slang
4. Sleeping Lessons
5. Turn a Square
6. Caring is Creepy
7. Turn on Me
8. Australia
9. Saint Simon
10. Know Your Onion!

They sound a bit odd at first, but one day I was driving and Phantom Limb came on the radio, and I said, God, this is really, really, really 'f'ing good.

Every single album by them is just so damn good by them. I am getting very impatient waiting for their fourth album. Speaking of that, does anyone know when they will be coming out with another album.

I didn't even know they were coming out with a new album until now. Thanks kid!
I own Phantom Limb and Chutes too Narrow and really enjoy both of the albums. The Shins always are able to put me in a good mood. Does anybody have information on the new album?

James Mercer apparently fired most of the band recently because he wanted to move in a different direction, production-wise. Sounds like a reason to start a new band, not fire the rest of the guys. But whatever, I don't know the ins and outs.

Pitchfork: Shins' James Mercer Spills About Lineup Changes, New Album, Other Projects

I'm always anxious for new Shins material and I'm curious what new direction he plans to go. Hopefully not too ego-centric.

I'd love to see your signature/links too, but the huge and obnoxious ones have caused me to block all signatures.

I am curious to see what it would be like if they made a more poppy album. They got some indie/pop stuff but I wonder what it would be like if they cranked that up a notch. A really mellow album would be cool too. As long as they stay fun like they always have been.

EDIT: And thanks for the linky pal.

Yeeez. Big fan for some years now. Can't wait for the next album, though it will probably be a while because Mercer is doing some stuff with Danger Mouse at the moment. Which is ****.

Anyways, fav songs are, well, them all.

But if I had to pick some, it would be Saint Simon, Australia, So Says I, A Comet Appears, New Slang, Phantom Limb, Turn On Me and Red Rabbits.

Yeah apparently Mercer "dismissed" the rest of the band because he wants to try something new. That's what side projects and new bands are for, jerk!

So who knows how long it'll be and what it'll sound like.

Aww... Danger Mouse isn't ****, if that's what you meant. I enjoyed The Grey Album, and Demon Days and Modern Guilt kicked ass. DANGERDOOM was ****ing hilarious and wonderful.

But yeah, that was a **** move on Mercer's part. Hopefully he gets a band that's as good, because I thought The Shins were great the way they were. Saint Simon, Caring Is Creepy, Sleeping Lessons, Kissing The Lipless, Phantom Limb, and Mine's Not a High Horse are my favorites. Let's hope there's something new before too too long.

This news is very unsettling, I love The Shins as a group... not sure if Mercer made the wisest move on this one. I'll listen to what he's gonna put out but I was really hoping for more Shins material. Bah
