Los Campesinos! have announced details of Heat Rash, a quarterly zine and music bundle which you can subscribe to through the band’s website. They have also put up new track Kindle A Flame In Her Heart for free download.
Full details from the band below:
“Heat Rash is intended to allow us to act in the moment, to talk about what we want to, as a platform for other mediums of ‘art’, and to write and release songs in a more spontaneous way. This will hopefully allow a less formal, more fluid, DIY vein of work to develop alongside, and outside, of our album releases.
Signing up for HEAT RASH will gift you the following:
A quarterly instalment of the HEAT RASH ‘zine and a limited edition 7” and digital download series of exclusive Los Campesinos! music that will not be available elsewhere. Not on iTunes, our own merch store or at gigs.
Discounts on items in the Los Campesinos! online store. This will include special bundles and big savings on new merchandise. New merch store to launch in the new year.
HEAT RASH subscribers will be able to buy tickets for gigs direct from loscampesinos.com. This will mean NO MORE BOOKING FEES when attending our concerts.
Opportunity to own physical copies of releases before they are available to purchase elsewhere online, or in stores.
What’s more, anybody who subscribes to HEAT RASH before the 20th of December will receive two new recordings of Los Campesinos! Christmas songs. This includes Kindle a Flame In Her Heart and The Holly And The Ivy, digitally packaged with artwork and hymn sheet.
As a taster of what’s to come, head over to the blog to whet your appetite and get a free download of one of these tracks.
Your friends, Los Campesinos!”
