The tour is in support of the band’s fifth studio album ‘Tangk‘ which is set for release on February 16 via Partisan. The LP’s lead single ‘Dancer’ featuring James Murphy and Nancy Whang of LCD Soundsystem, was released back in October.

Speaking to NME about the album, IDLES frontman Joe Talbot said: “When I started this album, I said to Bowen: ‘I want to make people dance, I want people to feel the love that I need in my life, I want to make people move, I want our music to be infectious again – and I want it to be infectious in a way that makes people feel, not think. I want to feel part of something electric again’”

He continued: “I wanted to elaborate and transgress from 2021’s ‘CRAWLER’, which was the start of something new for us. When something feels as electric as ‘CRAWLER’ did, I just wanted to continue it and to evoke a sense of purpose with what we are as musicians.”

Elsewhere, IDLES BBC Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac and a host of MPs have backed a campaign for a ban on rap lyrics being used in court.

They have written an open letter that can be signed by anyone, with notable signatories also including lawyer Lady Chakrabarti and Labour MPs Nadia Whittome and Kim Johnson.

Whittome is due to table new legislation drafted by the Art Not Evidence group – formed last year by a group of lawyers, academics and music industry professionals – in the next parliamentary session which will call for a rigorous set of tests to determine whether prosecutors should be allowed to put rap evidence, including lyrics, recorded tracks, and music videos in front of juries.
