Los Campesinos - exclamation points at the ready

A news pulse from the Los Campesinos, erm, camp warns the world to be ready for new stuff:

27th October sees the release of what the majority of you have decided to call our 'second' 'album'. Not that we ever have mind you.

- There will be no singles released from this RECORD.

- This RELEASE is going to be limited. There will be one, worldwide run of CDs, and then it will be out of print. Done with.

-The package comes in a 14cm by 19cm by 2.5cm two-piece card box. That makes it rectangular in shape.

- The CD will be accompanied by a self-made DVD documentary of our weekend at Oya festival and SummerSonic in August of this year.

- It also includes a 30+ page 'zine, including the record's lyrics and contributions by artists including Xiu Xiu, Grandaddy, Tender Forever, Menomena, Parenthetical Girls and Paul Heaton, based around the title 'We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed'.

- Also each box comes with an exclusive poster drawn for us by Jeffrey Brown.

In other words: it's going to be veryveryveryrare and veryverydesirable. And thus, worth a small fortune on eBay. Potentially.
