TUNE IDLES - Rachel Khoo
IDLES release new single ‘Rachel Khoo’ via Balley Records on 16th June taken from current album ‘Brutalism’ (out now).
At a time of uncertainty, IDLES bring you concise carnage. At a time of deceit, IDLES bring you honesty. At a time of hardship and despair, IDLES bring you a story of working hard for a what and who you love. In a time of polarised politics and murky waters, IDLES and their peers are essential to remind the world that it’s okay to dance, laugh and sing in the face of adversity.
IDLES have been thrust into a chaotic, whirlwind adventure which has seen them showcased at SXSW; selling out numerous shows on their first headline tour of the UK; and earning the status of one of British music’s most exciting and significant bands of 2017.
IDLES will play Rough Trade East, London on 20th June and join The Maccabees on their farewell tour playing: Alexandra Palace, London on 29th, 30th June and 1st July.
They will also play a string of festivals this summer: April: Live at Leeds (29th), Handmade Festival (30th) June: Download Festival (10th), Roskilde Festival (28th) July: Metropolis Festival (2nd), Bilbao BBK Festival (6th), Latitude Festival (15th), Standon Calling Festival (29th) August: OFF Festival (4th), Haldern Pop Festival (12th), Reading and Leeds Festival (25th & 26th).
