IDLES have announced New LP CRAWLER

IDLES have announced CRAWLER, their forthcoming release will drop on November 12, 2021 via Partisan Records The LP was recorded at Real World Studios in Bath during the COVID-19 pandemic and co-produced by Kenny Beats (Vince Staples, Freddie Gibbs) and IDLES guitarist Mark Bowen. Crawler’s Lead-single is “The Beachland Ballroom,” now and is accompanied by an official video directed by LOOSE.

Says Joe Talbot of the track, “It’s the most important song on the album, really. There’s 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.”

Adds Mark Bowen, “I didn’t know Joe could sing like that. He’s been trying to write ‘Be My Baby’ since the very beginning, but he didn’t want to be the punk guy wearing the Motown clothes. He wanted it to feel natural, and this song is.”
