Natalie Portman-approved indie rock band The Shins are heading out for a whirlwind tour in support of their fourth album Port of Morrow. The trek will take them all across North America and most of Europe before winding down at the Austin City Limits festival in mid-October.

Port of Morrow, The first Shins album in 5 years, has been critically lauded, despite the departure of founding members Dave Hernandez, Marty Crandall and Jesse Sandoval.

Below, check out the awesomely weird video for Port of Morrow's lead single Simple Song.
