IDLES Mercedes Marxist A new 7" single from the incredible Kingston visitors IDLES, following on from their 2018 album Joy As An Act Of Resistance. "Mercedes Marxist was a strange beast for us, after Rottweiler, it was the first song we wrote for Joy as an Act of Resistance. I was pissed off at what I was and where I was: I was sofa surfing on the weekends and spending the weeks looking after my mum. My life balance was way off and this song reflects just how useless I felt. It was me at my worst and without any buoyancy it became catharsis. It was the last splurge from Brutalism so we admitted it. I like it now. Joe x" Partisan Records 7"

Each version is packaged in different artwork. All variants include a photobook and download code. A live album from the incredible and critically acclaimed punks IDLES. Unleashing a massive setlist at the esteemed Bataclan in Paris. ‘A Beautiful Thing: IDLES Live at Le Bataclan’ is the brand new live album from IDLES, recorded at Le Bataclan in Paris on 3rd December 2018, at the close of a 90 date world tour. The album celebrates the band’s success over the last two years, featuring songs from ‘Brutalism’ and ‘Joy as an Act of Resistance’, and highlights their overall message of unity, and of healing through community. “Our show at Bataclan was the end of a very long journey for us. On that tour we learnt so much about ourselves, each other and the audiences we have grown with over the past 10 years. That show was nothing short of catharsis and nothing more than love. We love what we do and the people who have carried us here, there was no hiding that at Bataclan and we are so very grateful that the moment was captured in all its glory, love and fatigue. Long live the open minded and long live the moment.” - Joe Talbot Partisan Records CD | LP

IDLES Thursday 30th August at New Slang, 9:00pm PLEASE NOTE - posters are printed to order and will usually take significantly longer to dispatch than standard items. If you need your posters in a hurry, please let us know. Just before the release of their new album, Idles play at New Slang. Joy As An Act Of Resistance is the highly anticipated second full length album from Bristol's exciting band, Idles. This will also be a New Slang debut for the band and we're super excited to hear their infectious and arena-ready post-punk influenced tunes in Kingston. "This album is an attempt to be vulnerable to our audience and to encourage vulnerability; a brave naked smile in this shitty new world. We have stripped back the songs and lyrics to our bare flesh to allow each other to breathe, to celebrate our differences, and act as an ode to communities and the individuals that forge them. Because without our community, we’d be nothing." Support is coming from JOHN. DOORS - 9:00pm JOHN - 9:30pm IDLES - 10:30pm After the show, it's New Slang as usual where you can expect to hear the likes of Slaves, Wolf Alice, The Vaccines, Frank Turner, The Cribs, Circa Waves, White Lies and many more until 2AM.
