Idles are streaming their new album ‘Joy As An Act Of Resistance’ in full.
Out today (Friday, 31st August) via Partisan Records, it features recent singles ‘Colossus’ and ‘Danny Nedelko’.
“This album is an attempt to be vulnerable to our audience and to encourage vulnerability; a brave naked smile in this shitty new world,” says Joe Talbot.
“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.”
There’s a full statement on the album’s inspiration and origins, which you can find here.
Idles will support the record with their first ever world tour, which includes headline shows in Bristol, London, Manchester, Newcastle, Leeds, Nottingham, Birmingham, Brighton and Oxford later this year.
