When you try to get into a fairly up-and-coming band, it can sometimes be tough to find information. Luckily, that won’t be a problem for Times New Viking. Formed in 2003 in Columbus, OH, Beth Murphy (keyboards/vocals), Adam Elliott (drums/vocals), and Jared Phillips (guitar) have put together a three minute video that should give you all the details you need. Several snippets of their music play in the background as they drive around their snowy neighborhood, visit cemeteries, grab some lunch, and work in the studio.
Their forthcoming record, Dancer Equired, is due for release on April 26th via Merge Records.
