Following ‘Brutalism’ (2017) and ‘Joy as an Act of Resistance’ (2018), two releases
that garnered global critical acclaim, IDLES return with their highly anticipated third
album - ‘Ultra Mono’.

Sonically constructed to capture the feeling of a hip hop record (including production
contribution from Kenny Beats), the album doubles down on the vitriolic sneer and
blunt social commentary of their past work. Not far beneath the surface of their selfadmitted sloganeering lies a deeply complex and brutally relevant album that chews up clichés and spits them out as high art for the masses.

Features guest vocals from Jehnny Beth (Savages) and contributions from Warren
Ellis (Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds), David Yow (The Jesus Lizard) and Jamie
Cullum. This is momentary acceptance of the self. This is ‘Ultra Mono’.
