IDLES ANNOUNCE NEW ALBUM CRAWLER
IDLES have announced the 12th November of CRAWLER via Partisan Records, the UK group’s fourth album in as many years and the follow-up to their first No. 1, 2020’s Ultra Mono.

Pre-order CRAWLER HERE.
The first single “The Beachland Ballroom,” named after the iconic Ohio venue, is an honest-to-goodness soul song featuring a gorgeous, gripping vocal performance from frontman Joe Talbot. It’s available to stream now and is accompanied by a LOOSE-directed official video – https://youtu.be/t7aktt5cDqs.
Says Talbot of the track, “It’s the most important song on the album, really. There are so many bands that go through the small rooms and dream of making it into the big rooms. Being able to write a soul tune like this made me go, fuck — we’re at a place where we’re actually allowed to go to these big rooms and be creative and not just go through the motions and really appreciate what we’ve got. The song is sort of an allegory of feeling lost and getting through it. It’s one that I really love singing.”
Finally, after two years of us all sitting around our computers, watching live streams, desperately trying to recreate that festival feeling, The Great Escape is back and ready to take over Brighton. For 4 days in May, music lovers, industry experts, and artists from all around the world will decent on the seaside town, ready to explore the 30+ walkable venues and discover some incredible new bands.
