unemployed [UK] To Sweden this spring!

Britain 2009: A country in economic crisis governed by crooked politics and a stagnant rock scene. Something had to be done – so thought IDLES when they formed in Bristol that same year. Since then, the band has been described as “one of the most important UK bands of the last decade” by NME. In the British new wave of post-punk, they have a central place, along with groups like Squid, Dry Cleaning and Porridge Radio. Now we can announce that the band is coming to Sweden for their biggest concert yet in the form of a visit to Annexet in Stockholm on March 18th. Tickets will go on sale on Friday, September 22nd at 10am via!

IDLES got their big break in 2018 with the album “Joy As An Act of Resistance”. On the front line is band member Joe Talbot, who preaches in his passionate voice on everything he cares about: immigration policy, masculinity standards, addiction, mothers, the British welfare system… and why you should never fight with men with curly hair. Poetry.

During their unlikely career, IDLES have topped the UK album charts, performed at Coachella and been nominated for the prestigious Mercury Prize. But they are probably best known for their energetic and loving live shows, where they are not afraid to engage the audience. “I started a band to make people feel like they were part of something much bigger than themselves,” Joe Talbot said in an interview.
