Los Campesinos! - We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed: Wikipedia Album Entry

We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed is the second full-length record from Cardiff-based seven-piece Los Campesinos!. It was released in the UK on 27 October 2008 on Wichita Recordings & Limited to 5000 copies Only Worldwide. It came only thirty-three weeks after debut album Hold on Now, Youngster... and contains ten completely new tracks, none of which will be released as singles.

The album was recorded over an eleven-day recording session with John Goodmanson in his Seattle studio during June 2008.[

The title of the song "Between an Erupting Earth and an Exploding Sky" is a reference to a line from the novel Timequake by Kurt Vonnegut.
