James Mercer, the man behind THE SHINS, has been teasing new material from the almighty American indie-rock heroes for a while now. Following a spooky first teaser yesterday the group has now unveiled Dead Alive, a first single off the anticipated follow-up to 2012’s Point Of Morrow album. The band wanted to give you a ‘Halloween gift while you wait for the album.’ Although it won’t be out before 2017 this one already works great as a first teaser for it, don’t you agree?
