Times New Viking – New 7″ EP, Dates Aplenty

August 11th, 2008 at 3:42 pm by Gerard

Ignoring the somewhat pathetic pleading on the part of someone who may or may not work for a record company, Times New Viking have eschewed demands to release a 10″ EP, instead going the old tried and tested 7″ route with the forthcoming “Stay Awake”, due October 21.

SIDE A:
1. CALL & RESPOND
2. PAGAN EYES
3. HATE HATE HATE

SIDE B:
1. NO SYMPATHY
2. SICK & TYRED

All five songs will be available via the Matador Download Shoppe, and other goodlooking (if a tad monolithic) digital music emporiums.

To celebrate this achievement in recording/consumer anxiety, Times New Viking have the following shows forthcoming in the place we like to call America.

    Great news. I can’t wait it.

  2. Alex Says:

    will this be in a greater quantity than the last ep?
    or is it a situation where if you don’t pre-order you’ll probably miss out?

    this is great news though. though I too would have enjoyed a 10″, they really do shine on the 7″ format.

    To quote Patrick: “NOT LIMITED”. Phew.
