It probably came as a slight relief to fans of Wales' noisiest posse of uni-nicknamed twee emigrees when Aleks Campesinos! announced her departure from Los Campesinos! earlier this year - at least it was some news from the band, who'd virtually vanished from the map in 2009. Well, by their own standards - they did manage to put out two albums in 2008 while seemingly being on the road continually.
Anyhoo, a tour and a free download of new track 'The Sea Is A Good Place To Be' followed, and come February they'll finally be back 'properly' with third album 'Romance is Boring', and a typically massive tour to accompany. Hopefully at least one more album will follow by 2010's close.
