Los Campesinos! Announce New Album

Earlier today Los Campesinos! confirmed what anyone who follows their social media already knew: the band have a new album coming out very soon. The album in question is called ‘Hello Sadness’ and drops November 14th. Here’s the tracklist:

By Your Hand
Songs About Your Girlfriend
Hello Sadness
Life Is A Long Time
Every Defeat A Divorce (Three Lions)
Hate For The Island
The Black Bird, The Dark Slope
To Tundra
Baby I Got The Death Rattle
Light Leaves, Dark Sees Pt. II

It just wouldn’t be a LC! release without a song title with brackets. According to the band themselves, “‘Hello Sadness’ is ten songs of love, loss and heartbreak nail-gunned to a back-drop of broken, tangled bodies, creeping, dead-eyed animals, suffocating, looming shadows and World Cup exits. It is an honest, bare bones documentation of breaking up and trying not to break up in the process”.

The album can be preordered from the LC! website complete with a bundle of goodies such as a making of DVD. There may be a ton of good album releases coming up, but this one has to take the cake as my most anticipated album of the remainder of 2011.

  1. <3 LC! so much. I don't know if they'll ever get better than their debut, but I'm quite looking forward to this.
