"IDLES return with their new album, ‘CRAWLER’, an album of reflection and healing amid a worldwide pandemic that stretched the planet’s collective mental and physical health to the breaking point.
Frontman Joe Talbot says: “We want people who’ve gone through trauma, heartbreak, and loss to feel like they’re not alone, and also how it is possible to reclaim joy from those experiences.” IDLES albums have always been anchored by these overarching themes, but the ability of the band to juxtapose beauty and rage with humour and drama has never felt more satisfying than on ‘CRAWLER’.
These stories are vividly brought to life through IDLES’ most soul-stirring music to date, recorded with co-producers Kenny Beats (Vince Staples, Freddie Gibbs) and IDLES guitarist Mark Bowen.
Deluxe LP mastered at half-speed (45rpm), pressed on deluxe heavyweight 180g black double vinyl and housed in a gatefold jacket with printed inner sleeves.
Eco-Mix coloured vinyl LP housed in a single-sleeve jacket and printed inner sleeve. Eco-Mix vinyl production uses leftover wax that’s already in the factory, meaning each record is different and the colour is completely random and unique."
