Los Campesinos! to Assemble "Record Box" for U.S. Tour

As previously reported, Welsh twee-punkers Los Campesinos! recently wrapped up an album and have a U.K. tour in the offing. Since then, more details about their tour plans have come to light, namely that the sextet is planning a string of shows in the U.S. And they've got one other surprise in the works that'll have fans jumping out of their cardigans: a box chronicling that tour with a hand-picked curation of records from each city the Campesinos visit.

It's been dubbed the "ultimate LC! fan prize," and the band will be filming the box's travels as it acquires bargain-bin record store finds, limited-pressing 7-inches, and everything in between. If you want to win, you'll have to follow everything online.
