Los Campesinos will tour the United States in 2012.

Los Campesinos!, the jovial, hawk-toting act from Wales, have announced North American tour dates for 2012. They’ll land in Paradise (er, Boston) on January 19th, spend some time in Canada and make their way down the West Coast in February (the one period we don’t get any sun around here – bad timing, y’all). Don’t take this list as complete though, as the band have announced they have “just a few more [tour dates] to be added in due course.” Ooh, the suspense!
