IDLES announce details of huge UK and Ireland tour

IDLES have shared details of a massive tour of the UK and Ireland in 2021 which will see the Bristolians conclude the run of dates with a residency at London’s famous Brixton Academy.

Their third record, Ultra Mono, is set to arrive on September 25th via Partisan Records and now we can all pencil in when we get to finally hear the new material where it was born to be played.

The tour will see IDLES begin the run with two shows at Glasgow’s Barrowlands with all roads leading to Brixton on June 18th and 19th with stops lined up in Newcastle, Cardiff, Sheffield, Birmingham and Dublin with tickets going on general sale on Friday at 10am. The band are also offering a limited number of free tickets for key workers which are available on a first-come-first-served basis, here.

The highly-anticipated follow-up to IDLES’ game-changing album Joy As An Act of Resistance looks set to be a barnstormer judging by the singles ‘Model Village’, ‘Mr Motivator’, ‘Grounds’ and ‘A Hymn’ which have all gone down an absolute treat.
