Having returned to the live arena with an incendiary, life-affirming celebration of a gig at London’s Village Underground, IDLES are very pleased to announce that their 2024 world tour is being extended with additional dates across the UK and beyond.

Taking the power of love on the road, the new tour dates will see IDLES play to a combined audience of tens of thousands of fans during the new UK and Ireland autumn shows alone, including at London’s prestigious 10,000 capacity Alexandra Palace. Meanwhile, they’re also confirmed to play some of their biggest ever shows in North America, notably with two nights each at the Hollywood Palladium and at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre. All dates can be found here, with UK shows listed below.

Fans who pre-order the band’s upcoming album ‘TANGK’ HERE will receive access to a pre-sale for tour tickets. Remaining tickets will then go on general sale from 9am on Friday 8th December.

Vocalist Joe Talbot says of forthcoming album ‘TANGK’:

I needed love. So I made it. I gave love out to the world and it feels like magic. This is our album of gratitude and power. All love songs. All is love.”

Set to be released on February 16th via Partisan Records, the 11-track ‘TANGK’ was co-produced by Nigel Godrich (RadioheadThe SmileBeck), Kenny Beats (Denzel CurryVince StaplesBenee) and the band’s Mark Bowen. Extending an explosive run of unerringly stirring albums, ‘TANGK’ is this band’s most ambitious and striking record yet. They launched the album with the single ‘Dancer’, which features backing vocals from LCD Soundsystem duo James Murphy and Nancy Whang. Expect another new track to be unveiled soon…

‘TANGK’ follows IDLES’ 2021 album ‘CRAWLER’ which became their third successive UK Top 10 set and led to their first two Grammy Award nominations – building upon previous Ivor Novello Award as well as a BRIT nomination.

I am a photographer/musician/engineer living in Scotland. My passion is music and motocross and I share my work on facebook/punk4RT and facebook/madmaxmedia. I do like a bit of throw back to the heydays of the 60’s/70’s/80’s when it comes to taking shots of bands. I grew up on the music papers (NME/Sounds/Melody Maker) and drew influence from Pennie Smith/Jill Furmanovsky/Anton Corbijn/Bob Gruen/Adrian Boot/Charles Peterson.
