    Hi Sadness!

    Cardiff, Wales-based septet Los Campesinos! will return to the US this June in support of their latest record, Hello Sadness, released late last year on Arts & Crafts. They will perform with Yellow Ostrich.

    Live, Los Campesinos! are revelatory. The seven-piece is simply larger-than-life when they take the stage, oozing punk rock energy and encouraging cathartic sing-alongs. The songs from Hello Sadness sound bigger and bolder than their recorded counterparts; indeed, when at a Los Campesinos! show, sadness has never sounded so damn good.
