Hotly tipped, Los Campesinos! are set to take the UK by storm – surely tapping into the same spirit of wild abandon that fellow exclamation mark bearing, The Go! Team mainlined during the summer of ’06 – with ‘Death To Los Campesinos!’ their first single from their debut album, released today (18th Feb) on coloured 7”, CD, and download.
The single’s B-side will feature a cover of ‘Frontwards’, originally by seminal indie-rockers, Pavement. The LP, ‘Hold On Now, Youngster…’ will be released hot on its heels a week later, on 25th Feb.
You can still catch the tale end of their February tour, as they cut a dash to the South coast, this week…
