Bristol’s IDLES have just announced their follow up to the Grammy nominated Crawler. Titled Tangk (nope me neither!) it will be released on Partisan Records on 16th Feb 2024. Pronounced “tank”, the album was co-produced by Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, The Smile, Beck), the band’s Mark Bowen and Kenny Beats (Denzel Curry, Vince Staples, Benee).

To whet your appetite before then, they’ve announced the immediate release of a new single Dancer taken from the album. The track features backing vocals from LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy and Nancy Whang,

Joe Talbot tells us “’Dancer’ is the violence that comes from the pounding heart of the dancefloor and rushes through your body and gives you life from music, from love and from you.”

Where IDLES were once set on taking the world’s piss, squaring off with strong jaws against the perennially entitled, and exorcising personal trauma in real time, they have arrived in this new act to offer the fruits of such perseverance: love, joy, and indeed gratitude for the mere opportunity of existence. This music thrives not in spite of our problems but because of them. If we don’t look after ourselves and one another, all of ‘TANGK’ seems to exclaim in one enormous hook after another, who will?
