IDLES have racked up the praise they deserve with their debut album ‘Brutalism’ storming its way to becoming one of the best albums of 2017 (in our opinion).

The band are following up their success with their second album ‘JOY AS AN ACT OF RESISTANCE’ which is out on August 31st via Partisan Records.

In celebration of the release, the band will be hosting an art exhibition in London in aid of the Samaritans charity. The gallery will remain free with donations coming from the artwork sales.

Details of time and place as follows:

Open for two days, between 12pm and 8pm, and curated by the band, the exhibition will take place at:

HM Electrics Gallery
65 Nile St.
London N1 7RD

Within the gallery, there will be 18 pieces of work curated and contributed by:

Orlando Weeks
Nigel Talbot
Tao Lapsley
Russell Oliver
Robin Stewart
Tom Ham
Dapper Signs
Chris Nicholls
Ed Barrett
Beth Cater

IDLES are also heading out on an in-store live tour on the week following the release. It sees them beginning at Banquet Records on August 30th, then a double gig in their hometown of Bristol at Rough Trade on 31st before heading around the country and finishing up on the other side of the Severn Bridge in Cardiff on September 7th.

Here the band will find themselves playing the most iconic record store in South Wales and the oldest on the planet. Spillers intimate space will host chaotic sweatiness and rage throughout the lucky audience. If you want a ticket then pre-order the album for a front seat view of the carnage that will follow: Pre-order.
