Los Campesinos! return next month with their sixth album Sick Scenes and today they've shared the second taste of the album in the form of '5 Flucloxacillin', which you can hear below.

Now well into their 30s, Los Campesinos! are still making questionable decisions about how to get the most enjoyment out of life, and that's where we find Gareth Campesinos on this new track. It's an ode to the dependence on prescription drugs of many sorts, and considers the best way to maintain youth while being mocked by "a peloton of OAPs cycling up behind."

Listen to '5 Flucloxacillin' below. Sick Scenes is released on February 24th via Wichita Records. Los Campesinos! are touring North America through February and March, then return to the UK in April; full dates are at the bottom.
