U.K. indie-rock outfit Los Campesinos! released a new album and video, both titled “Hello Sadness.” (3.5/5 ‘staches)
In the video, we see all seven Campesinos! subjected to strange forms of torture, including an aggressive nose-picking/shaving, being slapped around by a stuffed teddy, and lead singer Gareth Campesinos! getting dragged around throughout the video only to be led to his own melancholy wedding service.
“Hello Sadness” is the second single off the band’s new album of the same name, which released today through the band’s label Arts & Crafts.
Check out Pop ‘stache’s review of the album here, and watch the band’s experimental torture below:
Los Campesinos! is currently touring the U.S. with a final destination in Tokyo.
