Los Campesinos! – “Feast Of Tongues”


Los Campesinos! are back, baby! The Welsh indie-pop crew has been missing in action for a while. Before today, the band hadn’t released anything since their 2017 album Sick Scenes, and seven years is a long time. Earlier this year, however, Los Campesinos! announced a North American tour and debuted the new song “A Psychic Wound” onstage in London. Now, they’ve finally unveiled their plans for the long-awaited new LP All Hell, which is set to come out this summer.

All Hell has 15 tracks, and some of them have some very vivd titles: “The Coin-Op Guillotine,” “To Hell In A Handjob,” “Adult Acne Stigmata.” Band member Tom Bromley — they’re using last names now — wrote all the music and produced the album, while singer Gareth David wrote the lyrics. Here’s how the band describes the LP on their Bandcamp page:

All Hell is an album on…

drinking for fun and drinking for misery // adult acne // adult friendship // football // death and dying // love and sex // late-stage capitalism // Orpheus // day dreaming // night terrors // the heart as an organ and as a burden // suburban boredom // Tears of the Kingdom // the punks on the playlist // increments of time // climate apocalypse //
the moon the moon the moon ///

It’s All Hell

Sounds great! Let’s go! Lead single “Feast Of Tongues” is the kind of charged-up, anthemic heart-on-sleeve indie rock that nobody seems to make anymore. It absolutely rips. Check out the song, the All Hell tracklist, and the band’s upcoming tour dates below.
