There’s no denying it; 2017 has well and truly been the year of IDLES. Since the release of their critically-acclaimed debut album Brutalism in March last year, the Bristol five-piece have gone on to reach frankly ridiculous heights at breakneck speed, still with no sign of slowing down in sight. Caustic, visceral punk for the mass-disenfranchised, the long-player arrived at time where it felt absolutely vital - a snarling, incendiary statement on increasingly trying times that’s gone on to cement them as one of the best bands Britain has to offer - GIGWISE
Kicking off 2018 by signing with Partisan Records and selling out shows in Manchester, London & Glasgow we're over the moon to announce their next and only headline gig north of the midlands will be Blackpool!
