NEWS: Los Campesinos! announce ‘A Los Campesinos! Christmas’ Cassette 

The Cardiff septet Los Campesinos! have announced the re-release of ‘A Los Campesinos! Christmas’, which is out today, the 3rd of December, on cassette. This is the first time the release will have been available in a physical format since it immediately sold out on its initial release in 2014. It is limited to 666 copies, and can be ordered via the band’s Bandcamp.

All profits to be donated to The Wallich, a Welsh homeless and rough sleeping charity, and Refuge, helping women and children against domestic violence.

Gareth from the band explains: “On our cover of the traditional carol the Holly & The Ivy, Rob added his own verse, with lyrics about him and his sister driving home for Christmas in a rental van. An LC! Xmas is perfect for a sepia-tinged moment like that, and so I think maybe cassette is the optimum format for it. I’d like to think this tape will be packed away with the Christmas trimmings each year, and get unboxed for a ceremonial listen annually”.
