CORONAVIRUS: Latest updates here.
Describing themselves as an 'angry band', English punk rock outfit Idles fuse the cathartic, angular rage of their scuzzy guitar riffs, pounding drum beats and rebel yell vocals with bitingly intelligent lyrics that explore everything from politics to toxic masculinity to tales of working-class strife. After the release of their acclaimed debut album Brutalism in 2017, the Bristolian rockers have stomped their way through the game and are now heading on out on their Beauty From Ashes US tour!
Whilst waxing lyrical on their anti-Brexit, pro-immigration and pro-gender equality point of view, this latest album finely balances a no-holds-barred agenda with an overarching sense of fun, peppering their defiant anthems with a sense of humor, lyrical in-jokes, and buoyant, singable choruses. As such, they put on a raucous live show where frontman Joe Talbot's boundless energy and wide-eyed, on-stage growling evokes mosh pits, mass sing-alongs, and general rock and roll bedlam.
