The Shins holding contest to win band’s first van

Aural Apothecary/Columbia RecordsThe Shins are giving away the first van they ever toured in, and you could be its new owner.

"To celebrate the release of our new record Heartworms, we're giving away our first van -- a 1990 Ford 350 Clubwagon," the band writes in a press release. "We bought it with our first advance from Sub Pop and toured the country in it for years. Now [we]...want one of YOU to keep the journey alive."

If that sounds like something you need in your life, you can enter to win the van by covering one of the songs from Heartworms and posting it on social media with the hashtag #ShinsVanContest. Frontman James Mercer will pick his favorite as the winner. For more info, visit

Heartworms will be released March 10.
