Arts & Crafts to release new album from Los Campesinos! on November 11th
The youthful septet from Cardiff, Wales, Los Campesinos! prove they have no shortage of ingenuity, creativity, and most importantly, energy, with the announcement of their new record. Arts & Crafts are set to release We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed in North America, November 11.
Upon the conclusion of the bands extensive North American tour this past spring, Los Campesinos! remained on America’s West Coast, in a Seattle studio with producer John Goodmanson (Sleater-Kinney/Blonde Redhead/Bikini Kill) for a two week recording session and returned to Wales to mix at Monnow Valley. From these inspired sessions comes another blast of emphatic, exhilarating pop songs.
In a recent note to their fans the band had this to say: “This is no b-sides, rarities or “songs that weren’t good enough to be on the album cobbled together with some remixes and field recordings” collection. It’s all new tracks that none of you have ever heard before. Sure, we considered re-releasing a radio-edit of “You! Me! Dancing! and trying to get famous, scrape another tour out of that, but our parents unanimously agreed that if we did they would never speak to us again.” For the entire website posting from Los Campesinos! visit www.loscampesinos.com
