Times New Viking Get Back to Their Roots

In this latest promotional video for Times New Viking’s upcoming release Dancer Equired, the recent Merge Records signees traipse through the snow in their Ohio hometowns. The short film takes the viewer to the small towns of Troy, New Lebanon and Gahanna, Ohio—all the while being serenaded by cuts from TNV’s new record. If the songs sound a bit less noisy than usual, that’s because the band took to a studio for the first time ever to record these tracks. The album was recorded at Columbus Discount Records and the famed Musicol Recording Studio in Columbus, Ohio. Dancer Equired hits record shops on April 26. In the meantime, you can catch the band as they head to SXSW—dates after the jump.
