After a wrapping up sell-out UK, US and Australian tours at the tail end of 2018 and early 2019, IDLES start another sold out UK tour next week, headlining their biggest venues yet. The run will include three London headliners at The Electric Ballroom.

IDLES’ second record ‘Joy As An Act Of Resistance’ debuted at no.5 in the UK charts, breaking Rough Trade’s all-time record for most pre-orders and sales in a day. It was the joint no.1 best-reviewed record of 2018 (average rating of 88 across 25 reviews) at Album Of The Year and in the Top 10 on Metacritic. The band saw not only singles but the album itself A-listed at 6 Music and earned major features, among others, with the likes of Q, Mojo, The Guardian and covers with DIY, Loud & Quiet, CRACK, So Young, Vive Le Rock and NME.

The band were also nominated for Breakthrough Act at The Brit Awards, won Best Breakthrough at the Q Awards and performed a chaotic Jools Holland debut which NME called “history in the making…incomparably brilliant”.

The dates for their upcoming tour are below…
