Bristolian punk rockers IDLES have a sold out tour of the UK impending this December, but for those of you who want to experience their live performance on record, they have a live album on the way.
Recorded on December 3rd 2018 at Le Bataclan, Paris at the close of a 90-date world tour, the band’s live album ‘A Beautiful Thing: IDLES Live At Le Bataclan’ will be released on December 6th 2019 through Partisan Records.
This is what frontman Joe Talbot had to say about the show.
“Our show at Le Bataclan was the end of a very long journey for us. On that tour we learnt so much about ourselves, each other and the audiences we have grown with over the past ten 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 Le 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.”
