The Shins Debut at #2 Next Week

From industry sheet Hits Daily Double:

"Sub Pop alternative darlings The Shins, who Natalie Portman promised would change our life in Garden State, return with Wincing the Night Away. Thanks to an impressive pre-order at iTunes and a Saturday Night Live appearance a couple of weeks back, the album could sell as much as 90k, giving it a #2 debut, the highest for the pioneering indie label in its history. "

They'll hit the charts between Pretty Ricky at #1 and John Cougar Mellencamp Truck Seller Guy at #3.

How the hell did that happen? Mugging in every single band photo pays off, I guess. Cool.
