Back home from another brief and brilliant trip to the United States. Thank you to everyone who saw us in Chicago, Cleveland, Brooklyn or Austin: we appreciate you all so much. You very generously contributed $1,074 at our charitable donations tin at the merch desk. That money will be going to the National Network of Abortion Funds, and we’ll match it with our own donation of the same amount to RAICES (Refugee & Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services) in Texas. No more gigs scheduled for this year as it stands, but please keep telling your friends about us, listening to our albums, buying our merch (store fully stocked soon) and we’ll have some cool stuff to announce for 2020 soon! 😘🍻 📸 @hashlet
🦅🇺🇸 2 weeks and we'll be in the USA ahead of our very brief run of shows 🇺🇸🦅 Very excited to hang out, drink some IPAs, eat some big sandwiches, watch some sick bands open for us, hit up Texas for the first time since 2012, be in America when it's not snowing for once, and see you guys. Are you coming? These shows aren't centred around promoting a release, we just fancied doing them because we've a couple months left on our visas. Means we can play whatever songs we want. Whatever songs you want? Maybe, it certainly wouldn't hurt to ask. Chicago, Cleveland, Brooklyn and Austin. Tickets here: www.loscampesinos.com/live
Barely 3 weeks until we head to the United States for this handful of shows! We're aware that not everyone is fortunate enough to have the disposable income to attend gigs. For that reason, we've set aside tickets for each show to allocate free of charge to low income/unemployed LC! fans. If you would like one please email band(at)loscampesinos(dot)com, no questions asked (with your name and gig you wish to attend). All gigs will have gender neutral facilities and are ADA accessible. Can't wait for these, please do come out! www.loscampesinos.com/live 7/6 - West Fest Chicago (All Ages) SOLD OUT 7/7 - The Empty Bottle, Chicago (21+, w/ Retirement Party) 7/8 - Grog Shop, Cleveland (All Ages, w/ Jetty Bones) 7/9 - Brooklyn Bowl, Brooklyn (All Ages, w/ Nervous Dater) 7/12 - Mohawk, Austin (All Ages)
Chicago sold out inside 12 hours and now we've added fantastic openers for Cleveland and Brooklyn. Jetty Bones joins us in Ohio, and Nervous Dater in New York! Add to that, our first Texas show since 2012 and we've got an awesome quartet of shows. Don't wait too long to get your tickets, NY is gonna be the next to sell out. www.loscampesinos.com/live

Late last year we did a repress of NO BLUES in the US. We smuggled some back into the UK and there's about 50 left, on this delicious pink cloud vinyl. Also comes with a new 12" lyric insert. Just £15, if you want to add one to your collection 🌸☁️ http://tinyurl.com/NB2018LP
Mostly just posting this photo to replace an old tour listing as our cover picture, but seeing as we're here... Our current US visas don't expire until October so we're working really hard to sort a week off work and a handful of shows in the States for this Summer INCLUDING tripping to a state that we've not been to for years. Webstore's up and running, as ever. Shipping direct from LC!HQ in case you want a slab of vinyl or a shirt or something www.loscampesinos.bigcartel.com Hopefully see you soon x
Los Camp! vinyl is once again available to buy direct from Gareth's spare room. - Remastered 'HON,Y...' & 'WAB,WAD' LPs, get both for just £30. - Last 20 copies of the alternative art reissue of 'HON,Y...' (only 500 pressed). - 'NO BLUES' 2018 US pressing. This LP sold out in America so we did another pressing late last year and have shipped 100 over here to sell. New 12" lyric insert, plus pink and white cloud vinyl. - The last 10 copies of the screen print art version of 'Sick Scenes'. Right here if you want it: www.loscampesinos.bigcartel.com
I hope you're all set to rinse 'A Los Campesinos! Christmas' for the next week or so. Sometimes I forget this record exists, but let's be honest, it's 6 bangers. What's your fave? Mine's 'A Doe to a Deer' or Rob's rendition of 'The Holly & The Ivy'. If you don't already own it, you can buy it from our Bandcamp (pay what you like). All money from sales will go to Refuge's seasonal appeal, helping women and children fleeing domestic abuse this Christmas. Plus, whatever you donate, we'll match with a donation of our own.

We’re back in the UK following another life-affirming run across North America, and so here come the thank yous. First off (incase you don’t read to the end…) thanks so much to everyone who came to a show. It sincerely seems our audiences become more emotionally invested in our shows year on year, and it’s such a privilege to get to play to you and to see you react to our songs the way you do. Thank you. Thanks to the amazing crew that supported us on this trip. Our sound engineer; Dan, our guitar tech; Bernie, our tour manager and greatest living American; Joe, Fionnuala who sold merchandise for us, and Lois who looked after baby Arlo while Kim and Jason were onstage. On that note, special thanks to Kim, who was completely unfazed by combining motherhood and rockstardom and consistently proves to be an incredible role model to the other 6 of us. A great pleasure of touring is always playing with bands whose music we love. illuminati hotties are the perfect party-starters and it was a pleasure to play shows down the West Coast with them to kick the tour off. If you've not listened to their album 'Kiss Yr Frenemies' yet then get on those pop bangers. Saying goodbye to Adult Mom still feels raw. Steph's songs are powerful and special and they've surrounded themself with powerful and special people in Lily, Liv and Emma. Thank you, we learnt a lot from you 💞 To everyone who contributed to the Trans Lifeline collection we had on the merch desk: you are fantastic. You donated a total of $1,588, and we’ll top that up to a neat $2,500 to give to a vital cause. We’re very blessed to get to do this, and to know and meet so many wonderful people. Thanks for supporting us, it means the world. LC!4LYF
