Back in August indie-pop troupe Los Campesinos! announced the release of their third proper album Hello Sadness. It's released on November 14 through Wichita Recordings. The first single happens to be the title track (that's 'Hello Sadness' for anyone not paying attention) and is the name of the first single. It's out this Friday, October 14 but you can listen to it NOW.
All you need to do is go over to Pitchfork and do the necessary, obvious and simple thing of pressing play on that there player. Mr Gareth explains what the song is about, roughly:
"Hello Sadness is a song of longing, it's a hand that once held and felt, but now claws and grasps at your own chest. The impressions love leaves, the bleaching caused by someone else's light and what remains when they've left."
The band have a few UK tour dates lined up before heading off to America and then Japan. These are listed below for your convenience.
