IDLES Share New Single 'Grace'

As they build towards the February 16th release of their eagerly anticipated new album TANGK, the irrepressible IDLES share the new single “Grace”.

“The song came from nowhere and everything. It was a breath and a call to be held,” says Joe Talbot, “The only words or singing that came from our sessions with Nigel and I needed it, truly. All is love.” “Grace” is a relatively slowburner by IDLES' standards, as it takes the time to amplify the tension before detonating with a life-affirming crescendo.

“No god, no king, I said love is the thing,” sings Joe Talbot, delivering IDLES' new manifesto of love triumphing over nihilism with arguably his most soulful (yet still slightly menacing) vocal to date. As with the rest of the upcoming album, “Grace” was produced by Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, The Smile, Beck), Kenny Beats (Denzel Curry, Vince Staples, Benee) and the band's Mark Bowen. 

Extending an explosive run of unerringly stirring albums, TANGK is this band's most ambitious and striking record yet, and is available to pre-order HERE. Set to be released via Partisan Records, it follows IDLES' 2021 album CRAWLER which led to their first two GRAMMY Award nominations.

As they began to lay the groundwork for TANGK, “Dancer” announced IDLES' return in style, a track which blended their kinetic intensity with a new-found lascivious playfulness and was further spotlighted with guest backing vocals from LCD Soundsystem duo James Murphy and Nancy Whang. 

Additionally, IDLES' 2024 world tour has kept on expanding, including a newly announced North American tour. They'll kick off the first leg in Vancouver, BC at PNE Forum on May 3rd, with the second leg beginning September 14th at Asheville, NC's Rabbit Rabbit and finishing in Mexico City.

Fans who pre-order the band's upcoming album TANGK HERE will receive access to a pre-sale for tour tickets. Remaining tickets will then go on general sale from 9:00am local time on Friday, December 8th. See all tour dates below and visit Idlesband.com for more information.
