UK punk-rockers IDLES will land in Australia in January. Playing songs from their critically acclaimed album ‘JOY AS AN ACT OF RESISTANCE’ , described as “deeply passionate” by Pitchfork, IDLES will deliver their intense live show to local audiences for the first time.
“They might just be Britain’s most necessary band.” – The Guardian
“Every so often a band comes along who are so fundamentally necessary that they cannot be denied.” – DIY (★★★★★)
With their new music, IDLES encourage openness; a mere brave naked smile in this messed up new world. They are calling for a positive punk revolution, saying that “Music and unity, community, love and mindfulness will help you get over anything.”
The band recently appeared on Later with Jools Holland, adding to their already lengthy list of laurels, having been invited to open for Foo Fighters at 02 Arena last year, supporting The Maccabees on their farewell tour, and performing at incredible festivals worldwide such as End of the Road, Serbia’s Exit Fest, Rock-en-Seine in Paris.
These intimate shows promise to be intensely beautiful, as IDLES hit their stride with a trio of debut Australian performances that will transform fans of punk and heavy music.
