IDLES have announced new album ‘Ultra Mono’ which is set to be released on September 25th via Partisan Records. They’ve also releases new single ‘Grounds’ along with an accompanying music video, which will feature on the album along side previously released single ‘Mr. Motivator’. This follows on from the critically acclaimed 2018 album ‘Joy As An Act Of Resistance’.
Lead singer Joe Talbot said this about the new single “a song that embodied self-belief, and gave us self-belief – a counter-punch to all the doubt we build up from all the noise we so easily let in”.
“We wanted to make the sound of our own hearts’ marching band, armed with a jackhammer and a smile,” he explained. “We wanted to make the sound of our engine starting. So we did. Thank you.”
The band have announced 3 new ticketed lives-streams which can be bought alone or in bundles with pre-orders of the album here. The dates are below.
