In the 5 years since Brutalism’s release English punk rock band IDLES have gone on to achieve epic feats including a number one album, sold out tours and festival headline appearances around the world. Their follow-up album, Joy as an Act of Resistance, further propelled the band into the UK (and beyond)’s consciousness and paved the way for the colossal Ultra Mono IDLES’ first UK No. 1 album. Last year’s CRAWLER contained the buzz-saw urgency that their now global fanbase had come to expect, but this time with more melodic and introspective songs. At every step of the way the band have garnered a wealth of dedicated supporters – from the early breaks given to them by Steve Lamacq and BBC 6 Music and the independent live music circuit, to their rabid AF Gang community – the latter of whom produced a feature film entitled “Don’t Go Gentle: A Film About IDLES” which was released globally and screened at many international film festivals.
