Los Campesinos! Give Away “Tiptoe Through The True Bits”, On U.S. Tour Next Month

Cardiff, Wales-based septet, Los Campesinos! have posted a brand new song – their first since the release of last year’s album Hello Sadness (Arts & Crafts) – on their website for free. The song, entitled “Tiptoe Through The True Bits,” is available to download free by clicking HERE. “Tiptoe Through The True Bits” was a song recorded at the same time as Hello Sadness, but never found a home on the album. Says the band, “’Tiptoe Through The True Bits’ acts as an appropriate bookend to what happens within Hello Sadness, both musically and personally.”

As previously announced, Los Campesinos! will return to the U.S. this June in support of Hello Sadness. Tickets for these shows are on sale now. Yellow Ostrich will support the band on all of their U.S. dates.

Live, Los Campesinos! are revelatory. The seven-piece is simply larger-than-life when they take the stage, oozing punk rock energy and encouraging cathartic sing-alongs. The songs from Hello Sadness sound bigger and bolder than their recorded counterparts; indeed, when at a Los Campesinos! show, sadness has never sounded so damn good.
