IDLES Announce New Live Album

IDLES are releasing a live album from their show at the Bataclan in Paris

Incendiary British punks IDLES have announced their first ever live album, A Beautiful Thing: IDLES Live At Le Bataclan.

The record will be released on December 6 ahead of their huge headline show at Alexandra Palace in London. It will be released on limited-edition double-LP in a range of colours, each with individual artwork and gatefold packaging. There will also be a booklet, photographs from the show and a selection of poetry.

There will also be CD and digital versions.

Our show at Bataclan was the end of a very long journey for us,” says vocalist Joe Talbot. 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.”

This December, IDLES head out on tour across the UK, including their biggest-ever headline show at London’s Alexandra Palace. All shows are sold out, so if you’ve got tickets, you are in for a treat!

Earlier this year, IDLES released new song Mercedes Marxist, and work has already started on their third full-length – due next year.
