After a landmark 2017 for the band, Bristol’s Idles are beginning 2018 with the news that they have finished recording their second album and with the announcement that they have signed to Partisan Records.

“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.” – Joe Talbot, Idles

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
