Times New Viking Sign With Merge, Announce New Album

    Times New Viking have signed Merge who will be putting out the band’s new album Dancer Equired on April 25. In the world of indie labels, Times New Viking’s previous home Matador were about on the same level as Merge, but Merge currently have a band gearing up to play the Grammy’s. Take that Chris Lombardi! The first single from the new album is called “No Room to Live” which could be previously heard on a tour-only 7”, which you can listen to over at Pitchfork. Merge continues to have one of the most ridiculously broad labels on the planet; Caribou, Lambchop and Times New Viking in the same place – weird. [p4k]
