The band Los Campesinos! have announced with great pleasure that they will be celebrating the release of their sixth album, Six Scenes, with an extensive UK and US Tour, including a visit to Manchester’s Club Academy on Sunday 29th October.
Now Wave Presents: Los Campesinos!
Sunday 29th October, 7pm
Manchester Club Academy
Los Campesinos! write about smart people doing terribly irrational things – using a depressant like alcohol to beat depression, burning the skin off your hands before seeing a palmist, “taking props from ‘90s boy band fashions”, masturbating in an ex’s shower, investing your emotional well-being in a far-flung football team.
Everyone involved should know better and yet they keep doing whatever it is to wrest something out of life. Which is to say that the English born, Cardiff formed band writes love songs; ones that take place in the logical blind spots where people find out what truly matters and how far they’re willing to go to make these things real. Passion is real, romance is boring. And Los Campesinos! write what they know on Sick Scenes: it owes its existence to LC! deciding whether or not to dedicate their energy to one of the most irrational past times someone in their 30s can pursue: being in a rock band.
