Eden Sessions concert: IDLES

We are pleased to announce that this show has been rescheduled for Saturday 18 September 2021. Original tickets remain valid for this new date and we are contacting all existing ticket purchasers with details.

IDLES have recently seen their third studio record, Ultra Mono, go straight to number one on the UK Albums Chart. The album is sonically constructed to capture the feeling of a hip-hop record, with the songs doubling down on the vitriolic sneer and blunt social commentary of their past work. It's a celebration of community, one that Idles have been striving to build since their start, something bigger than themselves. 


Hailing from Bristol, the band comprises vocalist Joe Talbot, Adam Devonshire on bass, guitarists Mark Bowen and Lee Kiernan, and Jon Beavis on drums. Their first album Brutalism, released in 2017, made a big impact and led to invites to support the likes of Foo Fighters on tour and to signing with the Brooklyn and London independent Partisan Records.

Second album, Joy As An Act Of Resistance, debuted at number five in the UK, breaking Rough Trade’s all-time record for most pre-orders and sales in a day. It was crowned 6 Music’s number one album of the year for 2018. IDLES won the coveted Ivor Novello award for Best Album, were nominated for the Mercury Prize, performed a raucous Jools Holland debut and saw three extensive tours sell out worldwide.
