Los Campesinos! bassist Ellen Waddell has announced she’s leaving the band.

Her last performance with the Cardiff-based group will be at their upcoming Christmas show at Islington Town Hall on 15 December.

The gig will mark the end of the Hello Sadness album cycle, and will be the band’s final show before the rest of them go away to record their fifth record.

Ellen revealed her decision on the band’s official website, writing:

“It is with a sad face I have to report that I am leaving Los Campesinos!. The show on the 15th of December in London will be my last, and I shall spend it struggling not to cry. Please don’t point out my tears if you come along. Simply pretend it is eye sweat.”
