Buen Chico - Working For A Work Free Future - NEW ALBUM OUT NOW

Buen Chico today release their long awaited third album Working For A Work Free Future. Following on from a succession of concept EPs this is their first full length album since Our Love's Enormous in 2007. We say while the wait has been long it's absolutely been worth the wait as the album is a belter. It's not just us that thinks so, Steve Lamacq has played a few tracks on BBC 6music including the album in his recommends program. Charlie Ashcroft at Amazing Radio is also a big fan.

The album is released on 12" LP (including CD copy) as well as on all download and streaming sites. You can find the vinyl at Rough Trade, Jumbo Records, Sound It Out Records, Notorious Aardvark, Crash Records, Vinyl Tap, Wah Wah Records and of course bandcamp page.
