The UK band’s fourth album in as many years, CRAWLER, which is the follow-up to 2020’s Ultra Mono, will be released on November 12 through Partisan Records, according to DLES. The 14-track album was co-produced by IDLES guitarist Mark Bowen and Kenny Beats (Vince Staples, Slowthai, Freddie Gibbs) and recorded in Bath’s renowned Real World Studios during the COVID-19 epidemic. The Beachland Ballroom’s first hit, “The Beachland Ballroom,” is a genuine soul ballad with a stunning, fascinating vocal performance from vocalist Joe Talbot.
British-Irish rock group Idles was founded in Bristol in 2009. Joe Talbot sings for the group, including Mark Bowen on guitar, Lee Kiernan on guitar, Adam Devonshire on bass, and Jon Beavis on drums (drums). Their album, Joy as an Act of Resistance, and their first album, Brutalism, were released to favorable reviews in 2017 and 2018. On September 25, 2020, their third album, Ultra Mono, was made available. On November 12, 2021, the group released Crawler, their fourth studio album. Joe Talbot, a Welsh singer, was raised in Devon and was born in Newport. Adam Devonshire, a bassist, and Talbot first connected at an Exeter sixth form college. Following their relocation to Bristol, Talbot and Devonshire decided to form a band while attending the University.
Talbot said, “We were fucking bad for a long time. It took us a potentially long time to get productive because we had no idea what we were doing.” Later, Talbot and Devonshire launched Bristol’s Bat-Cave Night Club. The guitarist Mark Bowen met Talbot while working as a DJ after relocating from Belfast to Bristol for school. The Welcome EP was the group’s debut release in 2012.  By 2014, the group had drummer Jon Beavis, guitarists Mark Bowen and Lee Kiernan, Talbot, and Devonshire. They started creating songs for their first album after releasing a second EP called Meat in 2015, which saw them take a harder-edged path than their earlier work.
The fourth album in four years from UK powerhouses IDLES, known for their intellectual yet brutal style of punk music, was just published. It is titled CRAWLER. On the new LP, they’ve diversified their sound by including everything from glam rock to grindcore, but their approach is still thoughtful and heartfelt. The group has announced that they will return to Australia before the end of next year.
It will be their first visit since they completely wowed crowds on their inaugural tour of our nation in 2019. When the band performs live, the fury of their recordings is accentuated rather than recreated. When you’re crammed into a steamy rock club, their performance exudes a dizzying mix of energy that seems both violent and optimistic. The following dates will see IDLES performing for nationwide fans in 2019. The sale of tickets begins on November 25.
