It’s official! The announcement we’ve all been waiting for, and we couldn’t be more excited! Idles have announced details of their second album Joy As An Act Of Resistance – the follow-up to 2017’s debut album Brutalism – out on 31st August via Partisan Records.
In addition to the release, the band will be going on a worldwide tour (literally) to promote the album in full force across the UK, US and Europe. Quite simply, Idles have achieved world domination.

To add more excitement to the mix, fellow Bristol post punkers Heavy Lungs will be joining Idles on all of the UK dates of the tour, while Bambara and JOHN join the band in the US and Europe respectively.
