Since emerging out of Cardiff University in 2007, Los Campesinos! has released five full-length studio albums, lapped the world on tour multiple times and garnered both fan and critical acclaim. Frontman Gareth Campesinos! writes from a uniquely referential and personal point of view, paired with equally complex melodies and compositions. Gareth Campesinos!, Neil Campesinos!, Tom Campesinos!, Kim Campesinos!, Rob Campesinos! and Jason Campesinos! are loved for energetic live performances and known to whip a crowd or two into an uncontrollable dance frenzy.
Los Campesinos! recently announced their own sold-out-in-advance festival, Us Vs Them and is back gearing up for action. Their current non-bio placeholder tells the tale:
‘We, the band Los Campesinos!, are between biographies at the moment, but essentially we invented and rejected indiepop in 2006, have released 5 albums, sold a lot of beer and are your ex-girlfriend’s favourite band. New album coming early 2017, new bio coming in about October.’
