Los Campesinos! is my favorite band (again)
I've recently had the luck to hear a bunch of tracks from the new full-legnth yet-to-be-released Los Campesinos! album, Hold On Now, Youngster, and once again, I'm completely ecstatic with Los Campesinos! love.
The new album is scheduled to be released February 25th, but if you want to hear a track, the Tullycraft website is hosting one of my favorite new album tracks for the sampling, "Broken Heartbeats Sound Like Breakbeats."
If you want to join me in superfandom, pre-order the single at the same time you order the album (um, hello, there's a LIMITED EDITION version, so you know I'm in). The single Death To Los Campesinos! will be released on the 18th of February 2008, on coloured 7", CD, and Download, the b sides are Pavement Cover - "Frontwards", and "Clunk-Rewind-Clunk-Play-Clunk"
They don't have any tour dates set for the Pacific Northwest (or for the US for that matter), but I'm trying to talk my +1 into a trip to Milan to see them at one of their three shows there. Here's the live version of their band new single ("Death To Los Campesinos!") from a recent stop in NYC.
