About

IDLES to host three live stream events in August 2020

Formed in Bristol in 2011, IDLES have released two albums. The rockers' debut was Brutalism in 2017. Joy As An Act Of Resistance came out in August 2018 and is something of a manifesto along with their attempt to be vulnerable and encourage vulnerability. 

IDLES are releasing their highly anticipated third album, Ultra Mono, on 25 September 2020, which will include their recently released song Grounds.

Recorded in Paris, Ultra Mono was constructed to capture the feeling of a hip-hop record. Across all 12 brutally relevant tracks, IDLES double down on their blunt social commentary, with themes of active presence, inclusivity, class, gender inequality, nationalism, community and toxic masculinity remaining ever-present. 

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 new album's release, IDLES will host a series of three live performances from an iconic studio space on 29 and 30 August 2020, which will be professionally recorded, filmed  and live streamed. Upon purchase of a ticket, attendees will receive a unique link to access the performance live.
