IDLES to host three live stream events in August 2020
Formed in Bristol in 2009, IDLES are known for their intense sound and abrasive lyrics.
The post-punk rocker's confrontational and infectiously volatile debut was Brutalism in 2017. Joy As An Act Of Resistance came out in 2018, acting as something of a manifesto for the band, as well as their attempt to be vulnerable and encourage vulnerability.
IDLES third album, Ultra Mono, was set for a September 2020 release. Recorded in Paris, Ultra Mono was constructed to capture the feeling of a hip-hop record. Across all 12 tracks, the band continued their blunt social commentary, with themes of inclusivity, gender inequality, nationalism, community, toxic masculinity and more.
Ultra Mono also features guest vocals from Jehnny Beth (Savages), as well as contributions from Warren Ellis (Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds), David Yow and Jamie Cullum.
Ahead of the new album's release, IDLES announced a series of three live-streamed performances from Abbey Road on 29 and 30 August 2020. In late August, the band announced UK tour dates for May and June 2021 with a limited amount of free tickets being offered to key workers.
