Idles are touring last year’s fourth studio album Crawler.

Idles, with supporting artist Jehnny Beth, were at the Victoria Warehouse in Manchester last Saturday night (January 29th) – relive it with Live4ever right here.

Crawler was the swift follow-up to the released-into-lockdown Ultra Mono, putting the band immediately back onto a firmer footing after the missteps both in and out of their control which informed that 2020 effort.

“At some point in their career every successful artist has had the conversation,” our review opens.

“It’s the one that takes place with themselves, where they ask, ‘What am I here for?’, ‘What do I/we write and perform music to achieve?’.

The answers will be infinite of variation, the public and private monologues different, but before a note of Crawler was written, Joe Talbot and the rest of Idles had definitely had the conversation.”
