What's 'The Beachland Ballroom', then, lads?

It looks like we’re getting something new from IDLES later today.

The band have been teasing something new for a while. Late last week, they cleared their social media, posting a teasing image featuring the copy ‘IN SPITE OF IT ALL, LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL’, including a link to a coming soon page.

That’s been followed up by their label, Partisan Records, posting images of billboards and painted mosaics featuring the same image and copy in different languages – seemingly located in the UK, France and Mexico.

If you click through to IDLES’ coming soon webpage, there’s a video embed for a track titled ‘The Beachland Ballroom’, with a Youtube premiere set to start at 6pm today, 28th September.

IDLES released their last album – the chart topping ‘Ultra Mono’ – last year. They kick off an almost entirely sold-out US tour next month, with a huge UK & European run scheduled in for early 2022.
