IDLES@ The Wyldes, Cornwall – 21st July 2024

IDLES announced as headliner for returning show at The Wyldes in 2024

IDLES will be performing a headline show next July 2024 at grassroots open air venue The Wyldes in North Cornwall. The news comes with the announcement of worldwide tour dates for the band, and amid a series of new headline show announcements from The Wyldes for the upcoming year.

IDLES will be live in The Wyldes, Cornwall on Sunday 21 July, 2024.

Beginning in much the same way as The Wyldes did, madcap truth-seekers IDLES began their vagabondage to indie-stardom by establishing Bristol night club ‘Batcave’, through which the band developed a passionate local following when they formed and gigged regularly there in 2009. They saw a steady incline in popularity over the following years, with self-produced records passed among fans and into the hands of music journalists hungry for IDLES’ raw, ragefully honest sound. As UK music press became increasingly fervent, IDLES released their debut full-length album ‘Brutalism’ in 2017 to high acclaim.

Extensive live touring sealed the group’s solid standing as up-and-coming festival favourites. With IDLES’ audiences growing, it became evident that there was an unprecedentedly widespread appetite for their raucous, often politically charged live performances. The band continued to write new material, producing another three records in as many years, in a prolific and hugely successful new era of music which ricocheted them into the rock hall of fame.

IDLES’ latest releases have kept the same rebellious spirit and cutting social commentary, whilst incorporating more dynamic arrangements, soul and electronic influences, and including collaborations with the likes of Jehnny Beth (of Savages), Warren Ellis (of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds) and Metallica. Their albums and live performances have collected awards and GRAMMY nominations in recent years, and 2022 saw a five-year anniversary re-release of ‘Brutalism’, with additional live tracks from IDLES’ performance at Glastonbury.

IDLES’ upcoming album ‘TANGK’, due to be released in February 2024, promises more of their trademark attitude, with a new focus on love, joy and gratitude. In a vow to themselves and their listeners to keep fighting for truth and to continue uplifting the world in hard times, ‘TANGK’ is jam-packed with emotion in a way IDLES fans won’t have heard before. Their 2024 tour, including their returning concert at atmospheric outdoor venue The Wyldes, is expected to showcase the most heartfelt, earth-shifting live performances that IDLES have given to date.

The Wyldes founder Lee Ellis said ‘We’ve been watching IDLES for years now – they always put an incredible amount of energy into their live shows, and their albums just keep getting better and better; it’s great to see that they are now getting the attention they deserve. Our festival-goers will be thrilled to see that IDLES are returning to The Wyldes on that date, which in previous years would have been Leopallooza Festival weekend.’

IDLES will perform live in The Wyldes, Cornwall on Sunday 21 July, 2024.
