Los Campesinos! announce new signing
Here's what they told us...
It is our utmost pleasure to officially announce on this beautiful Monday, the joining of Kim Campesinos! as our new vocalist and keyboard player (and a whole lot more). As I'm sure most of you are aware, Kim joins the band following Aleks' departure to return to her studies. In Kim we have a more than worthy successor. We are friends from way, way back, and I hope you'll make her feel very welcome.
For the full behind the scenes coverage of her signing and exclusive interviews from LC! Stadium, see the video
Aswell as this, we can reveal details of the first single to be taken from our forthcoming album. Entitled There Are Listed Buildings, the song will be available to buy on our ever nearer October UK Tour, printed on one sided heavy-weight 7'' vinyl, with artwork by the incredibly talented Cari Ann Wayman. After the tour, limited quantities will be available in stores. More news soon.
