About bloody time. If you’re an avid Los Campesinos! fan like I am then you will have been eagerly following the progress of their fourth album Hello Sadness, and the day has finally arrived when we can pre-order it along with some bonus goodies.
Here’s a copy of the email I so excitedly opened early today, it was almost as good as a very deprived christmas.
We, the band Los Campesinos!, are delighted to inform you of the details of the release of our imminent fourth album, Hello Sadness.
The 14th November (15th in North America) will see the record’s birth in CD, Vinyl and Digital format.
Conceived in Girona, Spain earlier this year, under the watchful eye of producer John Goodmanson, 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.
As an incentive for you to get in early and pre-order your copy, we’ve put together what we consider to be a pretttttty impressive pre-order bundle, only available direct from Los Campesinos! and for a limited time. This includes:
CD/Vinyl copy of Hello Sadness before store-release date.
Digital download of Hello Sadness
Exclusive Limited Edition DVD of footage from the recording of the new album. Including Documentary and a “How To Play…” feature.
Exclusive LC!.com pre-order only ‘Palmist’ t-shirt.
Hold On Now, Youngster… ‘The Demos’ CD – recently unearthed demo versions of songs from our first album. Including rare track How I Taught Myself To Scream and the previously unreleased No Tetris.
Just head on over to our website to get it while you can.
As ever, we thank you for your interest and support. We’re really excited about this new record, and we’re looking forward to you joining us in that excitement,
All the best,
Please feel free to familiarise yourself with their stellar previous work.
Stream: Los Campesinos!
