Los Campesinos! w/New LP in Nov.

 

On the hippest label
in North America, to boot!

By Blurt Staff

 

Cardiff, Wales, septet Los Campesinos! are
set to release their second album We Are
Beautiful, We Are Doomed
in North America
on November 11 via Arts & Crafts.

 

Los Campesinos! took North America by storm this past year,
first landing with the six-song Ep, Sticking
Fingers Into Sockets
, in July 2007 and making their U.S. debut performance
at Lollapalooza, launching the explosive single, “You! Me! Dancing!” Then in
April of this year, Los Campesinos! returned with their debut full-length, Hold On Now, Youngster, which garnered
glowing reviews from all the right hipsters.

 

Upon the conclusion of the band’s extensive North American
tour this past spring, Los Campesinos! remained on America’s
West Coast, in a Seattle studio with producer
John Goodmanson (Sleater-Kinney/Blonde Redhead/Bikini Kill) for a two week
recording session and returned to Wales
to mix at Monnow Valley.

 

In a recent note to their fans the band had this to say:
“This is no B-sides, rarities or ‘songs that weren’t good enough to be on the
album cobbled together with some remixes and field recordings’ collection. It’s
all new tracks that none of you have ever heard before. Sure, we considered
re-releasing a radio-edit of ‘You! Me! Dancing!’ and trying to get famous,
scrape another tour out of that, but our parents unanimously agreed that if we
did they would never speak to us again.”

 

Well, all right then. For the entire website posting from
