Los Campesinos!: New Album


Los Campesinos!
Cardiff, Wales' Los Campesinos! has announced the release of their new album, Romance is Boring, on January 26, 2010 on the Arts + Crafts label. Produced by John Goodmanson (Sleater-Kinney, The Wu-Tang Clan), Romance is Boring is the follow-up to 2008's critically acclaimed We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed. The album's first single, "There Are Listed Buildings," will be released digitally on November 3, 2009. A video for the single can currently be seen on the band's website. Romance is Boring features guest turns by Xiu Xiu's Jamie Stewart, Parenthetical Girls' Zac Pennington, and The Dead Science's Jherek Bischoff.

Romance is Boring, which was recorded in Seattle, Connecticut and Monmouthshire, Wales, sees the band expanding their instrumental palette to include brass, drum machines and strings, creating a more varied sound than their previous albums. The band says the album is about "the death and decay of the human body, lost love, mental breakdown and football."

Los Campesinos! return to America to tour this spring. Details on these shows will be announced soon.
