Los Campesinos!

Los Campesinos! performs on The Late Show with David Letterman Friday, January 20th

Upon embarking on their extensive North American tour, Cardiff, Wales' Los Campesinos! will be performing "By Your Hand", the opening track off of their latest album Hello Sadness on The Late Show with David Letterman on Friday, January 20, 2012 at 11:35pm ET/10:35pm CT on CBS.

"By Your Hand" deals with the eschatology of a relationship, and features the band's signature instrumentation, led by Gareth's distinct, rambling vocals and a killer chorus.

Live, the septet knows how to make the crowd jump with their massive sound and infectious punk rock energy, making this performance a definite must-see. See tour dates below!

Praise for Hello Sadness:

"The pleasure of Los Campesinos! is the pleasure of hearing Gareth Campesinos! talk - ramble, really - about miserable things… Gareth describes heartbreak as the splaying out of his innards not once, or twice, but on three separate songs on "Hello Sadness," …the band is better when not holding back, like on the fantastically stomping choral hook of "By Your Hand," or the polyphonically dense "Songs About Your Girlfriend," the most acidic song here." - The New York Times

"diverse breakup album that examines the many vivid moods stemming from love's implosion, from the titular sadness to rage to resignation and back again." - NPR

"Los Campesinos! can't stop adorning their odes to existential grief with snappy handclaps…still showing signs of growth on this third album… frontman and Morrissey/Malkmus acolyte Gareth always sounds giddy that someone crushed his heart and gave him an excuse to write another word-drunk cry of despair." - Spin
