Idles Tickets

After taking a year and a half hiatus from the live scene since their success of their debut EP release 'Welcome' which included BBC Introducing in the Southwest "Band of The Year", they've spent their time to perfect their writing process and "bleed out a shit tonne of songs that we're truly proud of and excited about."

Idles are like few other bands. They are violent, passionate, guttural and honest. They have spent the last four years working to the point where they've mastered their songs as visceral and jarring monolithic nods to the dark and estranged. Their live show is second to none, they give everything they have in an unapologetic force of nature, leaving nowhere for the audience to hide.

"We were best friends before the band but now Idles are brothers. We believe in everything we do and we always will. We love Idles. We'll always be Idles."

Their live show is second to none, they give everything they have in an unapologetic force of nature, leaving nowhere to hide.

Their sounds has been lovingly described by Geraint Davies of CRACK Magazine: ''Across four tracks of oppressive, propulsive scratch/grind/release, Meat feels like listening in on a reluctant confession. Stubborn, unyielding dynamics... ...push through shades of bitter blacks and opaque greys and blinding flashes of white, resolutely human catharsis overseen by a prevalent sense of watertight musicianship honed through countless, relentless hours glaring from Idle to Idle in boxy, dank rehearsal spaces. The result is a sonic Stockholm Syndrome; a public release of a deeply personal, insular process which pleads to be re-contained. Taut, concrete downstrokes constantly drive through Joe Talbot’s clenched, malevolent delivery as he muses on personal politics, everyman frustrations and idiosyncratic abstractions. Devouring influence whole, rejecting them then replacing them and regurgitating each and every one, this is post-punk is its realest sense. Meat is a bold, naked re-arrival, a deeply profound statement. It’s quite simply one of the most vital sounds emerging within British music right now.
