Electro-pop outfit Neon Indian has released a teaser to its upcoming sophomore full-length album to be released in fall 2011. The new track, “Heart: Attack,” is accompanied by a video, which takes place in Helsinki where Alan Palomo, the brains behind Neon Indian, wrote the upcoming record. Tour dates in North America have also been announced starting in mid-May and running through early July with stops at festivals.



Palomo’s one expands to four in live sets, adding Jason Faries, Leanne Macomber and Lars Larsen to fill out the Neon Indian sound. Starting his career as part of Ghosthustler and VEGA, Palomo released Neon Indian’s debut, Psychic Chasms, in 2009 to critical acclaim. The psychedelic, lo-fi ambiance was born from old scraps of VEGA tracks that didn’t seem right for that project, which Palomo then spun into his debut full-length.



In the winter of 2010, Palomo began working on the upcoming album before collaborating with the Flaming Lips’ Wayne Coyne on the four-track EP The Flaming Lips With Neon Indian. A limited edition 12-inch release, the album sold out on its first pressing.



Palomo and friends are joined on the road by Oberhofer, Sleigh Bells, CSS, Princeton and Asobi Seksu on select dates. The title and label for Neon Indian’s new album has yet to be released.
