Somewhere in the midst of all his web-based goings-on, Palomo managed to get up to Helsinki, to work on the band's forthcoming record, set to come out later this year. But before the as-yet-unnamed record sees its release, Neon Indian just announced that they will hit the road for a summer tour that kicks off right here in Dallas with a performance at Homegrown Music and Arts Festival.
And, along with the band's big announcement comes a video featuring clips of Palomo's icy adventures in Helsinki -- plus, more importantly, a clip from a new song called "Heart: Attack," which will be featured on the new record.
