2 IDLES230421.png IDLES Friday 23rd April at Pryzm, 8:00pm PLEASE NOTE: date is subject to change pending government / NIHP guidance around the coronavirus outbreak. If this event is postponed, we will let you know - please do not contact us until a rescheduled date is announced. Once announced, if you cannot make the rescheduled date refunds will be available. - Celebrating the release of their new album, IDLES return to Kingston to play at Pryzm. The third full length album from the critically acclaimed and inimitable band is titled Ultra Mono. Following on from one of Banquet's fav albums of 2018, Joy As An Act Of Resistance. Massive, arena-ready post-punk influenced tunes with a 'no bullshit, no apologies' punk attitude whilst approaching and tackling the most important issues in society. Sonically constructed to capture the feeling of a hip-hop record (including production contribution from Kenny Beats), the album doubles down on the vitriolic sneer and blunt social commentary of their past work. Not far beneath the surface of their self-admitted sloganeering lies a deeply complex and brutally relevant album that chews up clichés and spits them out as high art for the masses. This is momentary acceptance of the self. This is Ultra Mono. Times TBC but we expect doors at 8:00pm with IDLES on stage at 9:00pm CD/ticket is £15 post-paid, and other formats and combos will be available. Pryzm is all ages for this show - under 14s must be accompanied by a ticket-holding adult (18+). Over 18s should bring PHOTO ID (driving license / passport).

Only the second track and first single proper to be revealed, Prisoners forces attention upon itself, not least with the poignancy of Goodwin’s repeated greeting to ‘old friends’, but as an unstoppable, driving tale of caution in a world of unending desire. Produced by Doves with Dan Austin and recorded at the band’s own Frank Bough Sound III studios in North West England, the high heat of its Northern Soul beat is fanned by wiry guitar breaks and cuts of ethereal noise contorting beneath layers of stacked vocals. A statuesque musical statement, Prisoners guides Doves’ second chapter to a peak now within touching distance, the lyrics contrasting to express unease with modern ills. Times TBC but we expect doors at 9:00pm with Doves on stage at 10:00pm CD/ticket is £18 post-paid, and other formats and combos will be available. New Slang is an over 18s event, and is strict on ID.
