IDLES Announce New Album 'Crawler,' Share 'The Beachland Ballroom'
Following their explosive 2020 record Ultra Mono, UK post-punks IDLES have returned with plans for a new album titled Crawler, due November 12 through Partisan Records.

Today they've shared lead single "The Beachland Ballroom" — named after the iconic Ohio venue — alongside an intense video starring IDLES frontman Joe Talbot and directed by LOOSE.

"It's the most important song on the album, really," Talbot said of the track in a statement. "The song is sort of an allegory of feeling lost and getting through it. It's one that I really love singing."

The track is one of 14 on the forthcoming record, which was produced by Kenny Beats alongside IDLES guitarist Mark Bowen.
