Columbus, OH lo-fi rockers Times New Viking have joined the ever-growing roster of Durham-based Merge Records. The band are leaving another indie giant, Matador, who released their last two albums.

Merge will release Times New Viking's new album Dancer Equired on April 26. The first music video from the album is for the song "No Room To Live," which you can watch below. It's a fantastic little animated clip for the laid back tune.

The new record won't be the first time the band has recorded something for Merge Records. They contributed a cover of Arcade Fire's "Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)" to the 2009 Covers album which was part of Merge's twentieth anniversary celebration. Stream the cover via the YouTube clip below.
