More from OpenAir Sessions:

The band's sixth studio album "Sick Scenes" follows a short hiatus after its record contract had expired. The members performed three songs from the new album in our studio and spoke with Jeremy Petersen about self-financing the new album, selling Los Campesinos! soccer jerseys and seeing new fans on their current U.S. tour.

Stream the session above. Interview highlights:

Singer Gareth David on how time off from recording affected the new album:

"We got so used to just writing and recording one after the other constantly. We were like coiled springs."

David on the loyalty of the Los Campesinos! fanbase:

"Not many people like our band. But people who do like our band really like our band. And that makes for a good situation."

Songs performed:

  • "Sad Suppers"
  • "Here's To The Fourth Time!"
  • "The Fall Of Home"
