Their first album was received to rave reviews across the UK but Idles took a long time to get going.

The best kind of Brutalism: Idles' first album
British band Idles traces its history back to 2011, when two college friends decided to get together to make music. Fast forward a few years, and the band had grown to five members and, having worked through various influences from indie to rock, garage to hardcore, had finally found their niche in the punk rock scene. Their music is defiantly unique - the band prefers to not be labelled, but rather creates their own sound with punk rock as a starting point. It is undoubtedly loud and proud: guitars and drums are played fast and furiously, creating an uproarious sound that goes perfectly with the angry, emotion-laden lyrics of their songs. The first Idles album, 'Brutalism', was penned largely by lead singer Joe Talbot, whose mother died during its production and provided inspiration for much of the rage and pain that is pent up in its songs. Get yourself worked up into a good punk fury with tickets for Idles, available now on StubHub.
A furious experience: Idles in concert
After experiencing great success with their first album and accompanying tour, Idles found themselves well and truly established on the British punk scene. An exciting, young band, the years of hard work that have clearly been put into their music have paid off: with a strong identity, brave sound and enormous emotional drive behind their songs, they are able to speak to a whole generation of music lovers who are, let's face it, a little bit angry. The intelligence and depth to Idles' lyrics contrast with their furious sound and have seen the band invited to tour with giants like The Maccabees and Foo Fighters, as well as undertaking their own wide-ranging tours throughout the UK and USA. Alongside other British bands like Sleaford Mods and Fat White Family, Idles are putting humour, intelligence and creativity into punk rock, using it as a weapon against the state of the world and creating a sound that they believe in. Get ready for an evening of deafening defiance, with tickets for Idles available now to buy or sell on StubHub.
