Wichita’s Welsh indie rockers, Los Campesinos!, have come a long way from their riotous beginnings with underground hits such as You! Me! Dancing! However, one feature that has remained constant on this band’s journey is something that’s right at the heart of Los Campesinos! – the idea of a manner of communication with the group’s fans that stretches beyond the songs themselves, be it visual, online, or simply a conversation over the merch table.
Its their driving pursuit of this connection that has earned the band their reputation as one of the most formidable live acts touring today! With all 7 members giving everything they have on stage, Los Campesinos! have won an army of fans across the globe through their up close and personal live shows.
Recorded in Girona, overlooking the Pyrenees, Hello Sadness is the hotly anticipated fourth record by Los Campesinos!, and if 2009’s acclaimed release Romance Is Boring marked a giant step on from their genesis – seven kids and a glockenspiel, ricocheting off the four walls of a Cardiff rehearsal room – Hello Sadness sees the band take another confident stride forward, while covering familiar themes such as love, loss, heartbreak and football.
Don’t miss out on one of the live shows of the year from one of the UK’s brightest talents!
