Music: Los Campesinos! to release a follow up to 2008's "Hold On Now Youngster" in...2008?

Los Campesinos! just released their first full length(which is worth checking out), oh roughly 5 months ago.

Today they announced that their follow up, We Are Beautiful We Are Doomed, will be released on October 13.

This was just posted on their MySpace:

It's no B-Sides and rarities or "songs that weren't good enough to be on the album cobbled together with some remixes and field recordings of Cardiff's indie scene"; it's ten all-new tracks that none of you have ever heard before.

Sure, we considered re-releasing a radio-edit of 'You! Me! Dancing!' and trying to get famous and scraping another tour out of that, but our parents unanimously agreed that if we did they would never speak to us again.

Rather, we are blessed with having an incredibly supportive record label in Wichita, and they are as excited about such freedom, frivolities and spontaneity in releases as we are.

So the tracklisting looks like this:

Ways To Make It Through The Wall
We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed
Between An Erupting Earth And An Exploding Sk
You'll Need Those Fingers For Crossing
It's Never That Easy Though, Is It? (Song For The Other Kurt)
The End Of The Asterisk
Documented Minor Emotional Breakdown # 1
Heart Swells/Pacific Daylight Time
All Your Kayfabe Friends

All your Kayfabe friends?!?! Well I have never heard this song, nor have I seen the lyrics, but I'm all ready anointing it as the official song of this blog. Indie rock and wrestling all in one. I love Los Campesinos!

I know right? Who's next, Matthew Lillard?!?

You would be the resident expert on wrestling references in songs. The only one that immediately comes to mind for me is "Dead Wrestlers" by Bis. Do you know any others?
