Our daily ritual of starting our work day with checking e-mails, social media sites, and copious amounts of coffee has just paid off. Just a few minutes ago Los Campesinos! posted a free download and video for By Your Hand, the lead track from Hello Sadness, the forthcoming and overall fourth LP from Cardiff's indie pop stalwarts. The septet have also announced a handful of U.S. dates, none of which will bring them to the Boston area. However there schedule could accommodate some additional dates, so we'll remain hopeful until we hear something to the contrary.
You can grab By Your Hand for free over at the LC! web home, while you're there you should also check out the pre-order bundles for Hello Sadness, which will be released by Wichita Recordings in the U.K. and Arts & Crafts in the U.S. and Canada on November 13th and 14th respectively.
