It is a great honour to announce that we have been asked by the Cribs to support them in some massive, triumphant end of year shows.

Wednesday 2 December Birmingham o2 Academy
Thursday 3 December London Brixton Academy
Saturday 5 December Doncaster Dome
Sunday 6 December Edinburgh Corn Exchange

Tickets at or

This has been a big year for Los Campesinos! and this seems the perfect icing on the cake for us. I am so excited to do these shows that I was even prepared to sell my My Bloody Valentine ATP tickets. But it’s not every day you get the chance to live Sean Smith’s dream and play at Birmingham O2 Academy, and it is a true privilege to be invited to do so with a band as big and as good as the Cribs. Thank you very much.

While on a domestic tip, I’d like to take this opportunity to remind those at home of our October UK tour (All shows with Copy Haho and Sparky Deathcap)

WED 21 OCT Kasbah, Coventry 14+

THURS 22 OCT Joiners, Southampton 14+

FRI 23 OCT Phoenix, Exeter 14+ (01392 263518)

SAT 24 OCT The Gate, Cardiff 14+ (Also with Dananananaykroyd, Munch Munch and Internet Forever)

MON 26 OCT Deaf Institute, Manchester14+

TUE 27 OCT University, Newcastle 14+

WED 28 OCT Garage, London 14+

THU 29 OCT Zodiac, Oxford All Ages (Under 14s to be accompanied by an adult)

FRI 30 OCT Cockpit, Leeds14+

SAT 31 OCT King Tut’s, Glasgow 18+

These are, in most cases, reasonably small gigs and those in, for example, London, Manchester and Glasgow are really close to selling out, so I’d recommend buying tickets soon to ensure nobody’s disappointed. By now I am very excited to finally be playing shows in the UK again and to get material from our forthcoming record out and heard. Thank you for reading.

I leave the UK on October 13. I can’t believe I’m going to miss you guys. Come to Canada!

I’m taking my brother along to the Manchester gig as a birthday present so I reckon you should play WAAAR as it’s his (my) favourite song and you wouldn’t want to ruin his birthday.

Now it’s time for us Americans to be jealous because freshblueberrypancakes, that’s Johnny Marr. I’m guessing you don’t hold his nearly-playing for and support of Man City a problem. Which begs the question: which is a worse world, one without soccer or one without the Smiths….

Football > Music.

Comment by Gareth

the two go hand in hand: without football, we would have never have gotten to hear Morrissey sing ‘Roy’s Keen’.

ummm…. deaf institute? haha is that a joke?

Comment by Kia Marie

ahaha, no. the place where the gig is used to be an institute for the ‘deaf and dumb’. now it’s an awesome cafe/bar with a music hall.

Comment by Matthew

I’m jumping on the request bandwagon as started by Ste and Matthew – I also vote for Knee Deep at Manchester. Pretty please.

Comment by Gem

i already have my tickets to see you in Manchester for the first time and then i get to see you again in birmingham. YAY!!!

Comment by James

I thought Johnny Marr was playing with The Cribs, not Super Hans.
