Like the super aggro, unwashed Norsemen before them, Times New Viking are on the verge of conquering America… or at least Merge Records, where they recently signed. The lo-fi Ohioans’ followup to 2009’s Born Again Revisited (on Matador) is called Dancer Equired. It drops April 25 in the US. The first single, “No Room to Live,” was previously available as a tour-only 7-inch while the band cavorted across the lower 48 with Guided By Voices.
Times New Viking are scheduled to pillage their way through Austin, TX during this year’s South by Southwest Festival.
