IDLES Announces CRAWLER, Share First Single ‘The Beachland Ballroom’

A year after releasing Ultra Mono, IDLES are back with their fourth record CRAWLER and dropped its first single “The Beachland Ballroom.”

CRAWLER is set to arrive on November 12 on Partisan Records. The 14-track record was co-produced by Kenny Beats and IDLES guitarist Mark Bowen.

The single is named after the Cleveland venue that we’ve highlighted before, and the video is a raw, up-close shot of frontman Joe Talbot screaming along with the thrash poundings of the instruments. Sweaty and nearly bloody-eyed, Talbot leaves us with a dripping performance as if a prisoner persuading to be set free.

“It’s the most important song on the album, really,” Talbot said in a statement. “There’s so many bands that go through the small rooms and dream of making it into the big rooms. Being able to write a soul tune like this made me go, fuck — we’re at a place where we’re actually allowed to go to these big rooms and be creative and not just go through the motions and really appreciate what we’ve got. The song is sort of an allegory of feeling lost and getting through it. It’s one that I really love singing.”

Check out the video below.

 

 

The UK band will embark on a sold-out, twenty-three date North American tour on October 7. Next year they also have sold-out UK shows in January and February, including a four-night run at O2 Academy Brixton in London.

“I didn’t know Joe could sing like that,” Bowen said. “He’s been trying to write ‘Be My Baby’ since the very beginning, but he didn’t want to be the punk guy wearing the Motown clothes. He wanted it to feel natural, and this song is.”
