When Kerrang! caught up with vocalist Joe Talbot surrounding the release of the band's latest Joy As An Act Of Resistance album, the frontman explained of their live shows:

"Magic. It’s powerful. The audience and us together make something great. I love it and it’s a great feeling. What we’re trying to do is create a safe space. Hopefully the way we treat each other on stage encourages people. We’ve never had to kick anyone out. It’s what we’re aiming for."

He also added of their Top Five album and if things were any different in the IDLES camp these days:

"I don’t how it’s changed things, because we’ve been so fucking busy. I don’t know if it’s changed at all. I hope it has. The one thing it has changed is our optimism. It’s made me feel like there’s a lot of people who’ll go out of their way to support us, which is the best feeling in the world. That’s one thing I’ll take from that."
