The Shins perform “Name For You” on Colbert — watch

In support of Heartworms, the indie rock outfit's first LP since 2012

    The Shins recently kicked off a festival-packed spring tour in support of their new album, Heartworms. On Monday night, James Mercer & co. visited the Late Show with Stephen Colbert for their first television appearance of the promotional cycle. Catch their charming performance of “Name For You” up above. The band also gave Colbert a spin in their tour van (which they’re currently giving away to to person who does the best cover of their new songs).

    Heartworms, the follow-up to 2012’s Port of Morrow, is out now. The band recently shared videos for two different versions of “Name For You”.
