The Bristol punks are back with their second album, and they've got a lot to say about the shambolic Brexit-looming country we're currently having to endure from the Tory toff-ing top to the bastard bigot-ted bottom! Joy As An Act of Resistance is British to the core with it's nods to the punk and post-punk of the countries past and it's specific lyrical references to everyday British life. It's an album to knock your block off whilst making you want to dance away your troubles down your local community centre!

"Bristol, 5-piece Idles (aka “the UK's best punk band" - The Guardian) release their anticipated sophomore LP Joy as an Act of Resistance via Partisan Records. Produced by Space and mixed by Adam Greenspan and Nick Launay (Arcade Fire, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Kate Bush), Joy as an Act of Resistance takes aim at everything from toxic masculinity, nationalism, immigration, and class inequality - all while maintaining a visceral, infectious positivity. Singer Joe Talbot summarizes: “This album is an attempt to be vulnerable to our audience and to encourage vulnerability; a brave naked smile in this shitty new world. We have stripped back the songs and lyrics to our bare flesh to allow each other to breathe, to celebrate our differences, and act as an ode to communities and the individuals that forge them. Because without our community, we’d be nothing.”
