Idles announce live album of their show at The Bataclan, Paris


Idles have announced plans to release their first live album to date with recordings taken rom their performance at The Bataclan, Paris.

The record, A Beautiful Thing: IDLES Live at Le Bataclan, will be released on December 6th on CD and in three limited-edition coloured vinyl types which also includes a photobook on the insert.

“Our show at Le Bataclan was the end of a very long journey for us. On that tour, we learnt so much about ourselves, each other and the audiences we have grown with over the past 10 years,” they said of the show in a statement.

The Bristol band added: “That show was nothing short of catharsis and nothing more than love. We love what we do and the people who have carried us here, there was no hiding that night at Le Bataclan and we are so very grateful that the moment was captured in all its glory, love and fatigue. Long live the open-minded and long live the moment.”
