The Shins will tour the United States in 2012.

The Shins have announced an ever-so-slight tease of their tour schedule for 2012. In addition to their appearance at Coachella, they’ve scheduled four shows in close proximity on the West Coast in the middle of April. This makes them eligible for Fauxchella 2012, our list of Coachella artists making detours to play in the SF Bay Area (over 30 of ’em – well worth a look).

Tickets are on sale for the individual dates:

4/13/12 Las Vegas, NV Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas – The Pool
4/14/12 Indio, CA – Coachella 2012
4/21/12 Indio, CA – Coachella 2012

4/23/12 Davis, CA – Robert Mondavi Center
