Bristol, UK 5-piece IDLES (aka “the UK's best punk band" - The Guardian) have confirmed details for their anticipated sophomore LP. Produced by Space and mixed by Adam Greenspan & Nick Launay (Arcade Fire, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Kate Bush), ‘Joy as an Act of Resistance.’ takes aim at everything from toxic masculinity, nationalism, immigration, and class inequality - all while maintaining a visceral, infectious positivity. Singer Joe Talbot summarizes: “This album is an attempt to be vulnerable to our audience and to encourage vulnerability; a brave naked smile in this shitty new world. We have stripped back the songs and lyrics to our bare flesh to allow each other to breathe, to celebrate our differences, and act as an ode to communities and the individuals that forge them. Because without our community, we’d be nothing.” IDLES self-released their debut album - 'Brutalism' - in 2017. That record carried the band to #1 on Spotify’s Viral Chart, they opened for Foo Fighters at the O2, and landed on Loud & Quiet, CRACK, NME and BBC 6 Music’s albums of the year list. They’ve performed at Primavera, Latitude, Reading, and Leeds festivals, and were one of the biggest success stories to come out of SXSW 2018.
