IDLES ANNOUNCE NEW UK TOUR DATES AHEAD OF SOLD OUT SHOWS IN APRIL

Following the announcement of their signing to Partisan Records, ahead of their highly anticipated second album, Bristol’s IDLES have now announced a string of new UK tour dates in April.

Speaking about their recent signing to Partisan Records, vocalist Joe Talbot said, “IDLES have signed to Partisan Records. This is not a decision based on greed. They excite us and have injected ideas and passions into our camp that we would not have mustered. We as a family have realised our limitations in as far as the ship we have built with you all is becoming too much for the team we have to achieve the best of our abilities. It was time to admit a necessity for help but we needed that to come in the form of trusted, earnest and like-minded people who were as passionate about our art and you people as we were: Partisan Records are the partners we were looking for. We haven’t been given a huge wedge of cash but instead a huge wedge of confidence that we are in safe hands and make no mistake, we are not going to stop working fucking hard for you and ourselves.”

Partisan Records was co-founded in Brooklyn in 2007 by Tim Putnam and Ian Wheeler and now has offices in New York, London and LA. They have previously worked with the likes of Cigarettes After Sex, Deer Tick, Torres, Eagulls and John Grant.

Tim Putnam also commented on the signing, saying “We’re very excited to welcome IDLES to our roster. They are an altogether necessary band for the times we live in and we are honoured to have been trusted as their chosen partners. As Joe says: All Is Love!”
