Since the release of their breakthrough debut in 2006, Los Angeles' own Shiny Toy Guns were one of the first bands to successfully blend indie rock with synth pop. On a brief, six-show tour, the outfit is returning to the club circuit for the first time in years. Not having any new material looming, or at least publicly announced, Shiny Toy Guns are billing the tour as the last one for 2012's III, the first since the group's debut to feature all of the original members. The album did fairly well by today's standards, peaking on the Billboard 200 at No. 69, and featured three singles. While this show may be one of their last for now, the band are getting along as well as they have in years, which is a step in the right direction.
