IDLES return with TANGK, their fifth studio album following the release of 2021’s GRAMMY-nominated album, ‘CRAWLER’. A radical sense of defiant empowerment radiates from ‘TANGK’, co-produced by Nigel Godrich, Kenny Beats and IDLES guitarist Mark Bowen. Despite his reputation as an incendiary post-punk sparkplug, frontman Joe Talbot sings almost all the feelings inside these 10 songs with hard-earned soul, offering each lusty vow or solidarity plea as a bona fide pop song - that is, a thing for everyone to pass around and share, communal anthems intended for overcoming our grievance. ‘TANGK’ is a love album - open to anyone who requires something to shout out loud in order to fend off any encroaching sense of the void, now or forever.  First single, ‘Dancer’, features guest appearances by Nancy Whang and James Murphy from LCD Soundsystem and has since accumulated 5 million streams. The official video for ‘Dancer’ has over 1.5M views on YouTube.

The band are Ivor Novello winners and have received two GRAMMY nominations, two BRIT Award nominations and a Mercury Prize nomination.  Headline UK tour planned in November 2024, all dates 80% to 90% sold including London’s Alexandra Palace.  IDLES’ catalogue has sold 275k albums in the UK to-date.  Over 400 million global career streams. NPR Tiny Desk performance has 8.2 million views.

Deluxe LP pressed on translucent yellow vinyl, housed in a deluxe holographic gatefold jacket with art and lyric booklet designed by Joe Talbot and Joshua Hughes- Games.

Printed inner sleeve. Pink vinyl format housed in a single-sleeve jacket and printed inner sleeve.
