Having returned to the live arena with an incendiary, life-affirming celebration of a gig at London’s Village Underground, Idles have announced that their 2024 world tour is being extended with additional dates across the UK and beyond. This includes a Sussex concert at the Brighton Centre which has been organised by local promoters Lout -Tickets here and here.
Taking the power of love on the road, the new tour dates will see IDLES play to a combined audience of tens of thousands of fans during the new UK and Ireland autumn shows alone, including at London’s prestigious 10,000 capacity Alexandra Palace. Meanwhile, they’re also confirmed to play some of their biggest ever shows in North America, notably with two nights each at the Hollywood Palladium and at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre. All dates can be found here, with UK shows listed below.
Fans who pre-order the band’s upcoming album ‘Tangk’ here will receive access to a pre-sale for tour tickets. Remaining tickets will then go on general sale from 9am on Friday 8 December.
Vocalist Joe Talbot says of forthcoming album ‘Tangk’: “I needed love. So I made it. I gave love out to the world and it feels like magic. This is our album of gratitude and power. All love songs. All is love.”
Set to be released on Friday 16 February via Partisan Records, the 11-track ‘TANGK’ was co-produced by Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, The Smile, Beck), Kenny Beats (Denzel Curry, Vince Staples, Benee) and the band’s Mark Bowen. Extending an explosive run of unerringly stirring albums, ‘Tangk’ is this band’s most ambitious and striking record yet. They launched the album with the single ‘Dancer’, which features backing vocals from LCD Soundsystem duo James Murphy and Nancy Whang. Expect another new track to be unveiled soon…
‘Tangk’ follows Idles’ 2021 album ‘Crawler’ which became their third successive UK Top 10 set and led to their first two Grammy Award nominations – building upon previous Ivor Novello Award as well as a BRIT nomination.
