Los Campesinos! to release second album in October


Los Campesinos! have announced the release of a new record so soon after February’s Hold On Now, Youngster…. Coming on October 13th is We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed – ten brand new tracks recorded in Seattle from June 12-23rd with Mr John Goodmanson (who also recently did Fight Like Apes) and mixed immediately after at Monnow Valley in Wales.

The band are keen to emphasise: “It’s no B-Sides and rarities or ‘songs that weren’t good enough to be on the album cobbled together with some remixes and field recordings of Cardiff’s indie scene’; it’s ten all-new tracks that none of you have ever heard before.”

2. Miserabilia
3. We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed
4. Between An Erupting Earth And An Exploding Sky
