Hello Sadness is our imminent fourth studio album, recorded earlier this year in Girona, Spain.
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. Hello Sadness.
Also on the band's website is a multitude of ways to order the record, in various bundles with t-shirts demos and what not. Get involved, if you fancy. Oh, and another LC! news update. In case you weren't aware, Harriet has left the band to focus on other things. More is explained on that there blog post, but she'll play a final two shows with the band before leaving.
