Announce Massive 25 Date UK Tour March/April 2017
Announce Debut Album “Brutalism” for March 10th
Bristol’s finest post-punk polemics IDLES have announced that they will be embarking on the massive 25 date ‘Brutalism UK Tour’ in March/April 2017. Politically charged, refreshingly confrontational and infectiously volatile, IDLES are a band like no other. Bringing the unsettling reality of the world we live in into their frantic assault on the senses, they are a band that can only be truly understood by witnessing in a live environment.
The October release of single “Well Done” has seen the band rise to no.1 on Spotify’s Viral Charts & paired with intensive radio support from Huw Stephens, Annie Mac, Steve Lamacq and regular Radio 6 play has brought them to the forefront of ones to watch.
Don’t miss your chance to catch one of the most exciting bands in Britain in their purest form at the dates below.
Their much anticipated debut album Brutalism out 10th March.
“IDLES are hard to capture, because they’re not Fat White Family, they’re not Sleaford Mods, they are very much their own incarnation of uncompromising rhythmical punk rock. Lyrically, a mixture of dry obsessional humour and poetic slogans. But, best of all, they really get the adrenalin pumping”.
Steve Lamacq BBC6 Music
“IDLES stand alone”
“Blunt and to the point… (Well Done) is
a visceral anthem that’s timed weirdly well for 2016’s
New Music Of The Day – NME
“Politically charged and furious… bruising, lacerating.”
The Line Of Best Fit
“Wilder than a very wild thing marked wild in the wild shop in the middle of the wild wild wood. An IDLES live show is not quite like anything that you have ever seen or heard. Its got all the ingredients taken from rock n roll’s rich history but the synthesis is entirely their own. The wild men of Bristol”.
