In a seeming effort to keep its indie streak alive, Saturday Night Live has nabbed The Shins to play 30 Rock on March 10. Following this month's musical guests Bon Iver and Sleigh Bells, the performance will be the Shins' second time on SNL (the first being alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in 2007). Hosting the show that night will be the newly slim Jonah Hill.
The Shins' highly anticipated fourth LP, Port of Morrow, shows up March 20 via Aural Apothecary/Colombia. Watch the video for the album's "Simple Song" below.
