With a current US Tour underway, IDLES have shared a new track Mercedes Marxist. Set for physical release on 7″ vinyl August 2nd. The new track was recorded as part of the sessions for their acclaimed sophomore album Joy as an Act of Resistance. The 7″ single will also include another spanking new track on the B-side, I Dream Gullioutine. In addition to their current Sold Out US Tour, the band have announced another run of American dates this fall, playing their biggest venues yet. Dates include an October 17th show at Terminal 5 in NYC and an October 8th show at The Welters in LA, featuring support from Surfbort. Tickets will go on sale Friday May 10th at 10am local time.
IDLES were recently profiled by the NY Times and GQ as leaders in a movement of new bands tearing down outdated perceptions of masculinity. Their songs are a full-throated indictment of sexism, racism, Trumpism/Brexit, Nationalism, and toxic masculinity.
Mercedes Marxist will be released physically on August 2nd. Pre-orders are available HERE.
