IDLES

DEBUT NEW TRACK  "COLOSSUS"

Bristol’s IDLES have shared a new song and video - "Colossus" is a blistering two-part takedown of toxic masculinity, and the video (directed by Will Hooper) features cameos from Stone Cold Steve Austin, Fred Astaire, Evel Knievel, Jesus Christ + more.

IDLES self-released their debut album - 'Brutalism' - last year. That record earned them the title of "the UK's best punk band" from The Guardian, and they were one of the biggest success stories to come out of SXSW this March ("May be the best punk show of its kind I’ve ever witnessed... felt like experiencing something people will be talking about for years to come." - Austin American Statesmen).

At a point of uncertainty, IDLES bring you concise carnage. At a time of lies, IDLES bring you honesty. At a time of  body shaming and Photoshop, IDLES bring you a visceral barrage of joyous bile. At a time of The Kardashians, IDLES bring you a story of working hard for what and who you love.

In a time of polarised politics and murky waters; IDLES and bands like them are needed to remind people that it’s ok to dance and laugh and sing in the face of adversity.

Bristol’s finest post – punk polemics IDLES have been promising to do great things for some time now, and with their debut album “Brutalism” they absolutely fulfil that promise, and a furious promise at that.

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 until now could only be truly understood by witnessing in a live environment but with “Brutalism” it surely feels like they have captured the intensity of that live sound. Bottled up here are the abrasive, memorable lyrics of Joseph Talbot delivered with all of the spite and wry humour he puts across on the stage.

Dedicated in part to the loss of his mother, who adorns the record’s cover, and partly to a perceived decimation of society, from the NHS to public services across Britain,  “Brutalism” is a deadly serious indictment on popular culture – Mary Berry, Trevor Nelson and Rachel Khoo are just some of the names referenced here, often alongside the unpleasant, but always amongst the real.

This year's "Brutalism" LP received considerable attention on its release and this alongside their incendiary live shows have garnered them a growing fan base ever since. Jeremy Vine is among their admirers, they’re in Radio 6’s albums of the year, they were 33-1 for the Mercury Prize at Ladbrokes ahead of announcement and they had the biggest crowd of the whole weekend on The Lake Stage at Latitude where they also performed a secret set for the BBC, also rammed, directly after at the Introducing stage.

As well as their own headlining tour, the band have performed dates with Dead Kennedy's, DIIV and were The Maccabees special guests at all three of their final shows at Alexandra Palace.

They’ve not been hurt by a succession of brilliant music videos either. Take a watch of their recent video for “Mother”, where front man Joe Talbot proceeds to destroy a table full of china, piece by piece:
