a new album and tour
Grammy-nominated rock band Idles is heading on a new tour in support of the new album 'Tangk.' Describing themselves as an 'angry band,' the 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 hitting the North American shores!
While waxing lyrical about 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 evoke mosh pits, mass sing-alongs, and general rock and roll bedlam.
