IDLES prep live album (listen to “Mother”), play NYC tonight w/ Preoccupations


UK punks IDLES have been on tour, almost constantly, for the last two years, with their exuberant concerts really winning people over, so it’s no real surprise they’re releasing a live album. Recorded in Paris, A Beautiful Thing: IDLES Live at Le Bataclan is out December 6 via Partisan. “Our show at Bataclan was the end of a very long journey for us. On that tour we learnt so much about ourselves, each other and the audiences we have grown with over the past 10 years,” says frontman Joe Talbot. That show was nothing short of catharsis and nothing more than love. We love what we do and the people who have carried us here, there was no hiding that at Bataclan and we are so very grateful that the moment was captured in all its glory, love and fatigue. Long live the open minded and long live the moment.”

The album will released with three different colored vinyl variants, each with their own individual artwork. They’ll all come in deluxe gatefold packaging, with a booklet designed by frontman Talbot, featuring photographs from the show and a selection of poetry. Pre-orders are available now and you can watch the video for “Mother” below.
