TUNE IDLES - Stendhal Syndrome
IDLES release new single ‘Stendhal Syndrome’ on 10th March via Balley Records taken from debut album ‘Brutalism’ (also 10th March).
Following their critically acclaimed single ‘Well Done’, Bristol’s finest post-punk polemics IDLES are now at the forefront of ones to watch in 2017 as championed by: The Guardian, Live Nation Source, DIY and NME. Furiously charged, refreshingly confrontational and infectiously volatile, IDLES bring the unsettling reality of the world we live into their frantic assault on the senses. They are a band for you and are here to show you they care.
IDLES will play Omeara, London 28th January, followed by an extensive UK tour in March and April. March: Portland Arms Cambridge (6th March), The Fleece Bristol (8th), Arts Centre Colchester (9th), Moth Club London (10th), The Hobbit Southampton (12th), The Hare and Hounds Birmingham (14th), Boileroom Guildford (15th), The Bullingdon Oxford (20th), The Plug Sheffield (21st), Think Tank Newcastle (22nd), Tunnels Aberdeen (23rd), Buskers Dundee (24th), Sneaky Pete’s Edinburgh (25th), The Crescent York (27th), The Adelphi Hull (28th), The Bodega Nottingham (29th), O2 Academy 2 Liverpool (30th), Unity Hall Wakefield (31st). April: The Sugarmill Stoke-On-Trent (3rd), Guildhall Preston (4th) and Clwb Ifor Bach Cardiff (5th).
