IDLES is a post-rock band from Bristol, UK that is indispensable when it comes to guitar music in today's musical landscape.
Passionate, political and darkly comedic, the first two IDLES albums touch on everything from sexism and racism, to Brexit and nationalism, to toxic masculinity. Their music feels incredibly personal and at other times universal, wearing both its heart - and an active mind - on its sleeve.


In a musical landscape that had become so safe and sanitized, IDLES are a bolt to the arm of the norm. Their second album, ‘Joy As An Act Of Resistance’, debuted at no.5 in the UK charts, breaking Rough Trade’s all-time record for most pre-orders and sales in a day. The band saw the album A-listed at 6 Music and later crowned 6 Music’s no. 1 album of the year. They won Best Breakthrough at the Q Awards and a coveted Ivor Novello award for Best Album; were nominated for a Mercury Prize and Breakthrough Artist at the Brit Awards; performed a raucous Jools Holland debut, and saw not one, but three extensive tours sell-out worldwide. 'ULTRA MONO', their third album is set for release on 25 Sept 2020.
