Idles - Colossus (New Album)


#21

Oooh nice I’m liking Sauna Youth a lot - and the Kong masks in the vid - cheers


#22

yeah think I’m gonna need to do this too


#23

no problem, they’re my boys (and grrrl) who I’ve played with (and their alter egos Monotony) a couple times.

They’ve got some new stuff on the way, they’re supporting Protomartyr and also that Hookworms/Ought show later in the year (I guess most recent Hookworms record can also be called post-punk?)


#24

oh also their cover of Pissed Jeans is brilliant too :smiley:


#25

I can’t get over the vocals/lyrics which is a shame cos the music is ace.

Th first half of this single is a lot better than the second. Really wish the build had continued, was absolutely loving it.


#26

That stopped me a bit too - it was pretty anticlimactic. Maybe that was the point but it just didn’t work for me.


#27

Shameless Jagging. Lucky enough to support Idles previously so has been fun watching them get big;


#28

I like the lyrics, but often they seem quite cynically calculated. Songs about Stone Cold and Mary Berry are fun, but they’re a bit knowing.


#29

Shoutout to Zack Sabre Jr for introducing me to Mother and getting me well into this band.


#30

Love ZSJ, really want his shirt


#31

Yeah he was selling them at SSS16 but I didn’t have enough cash on me after I’d already bought a signed 8x10 from him plus a classic Progress logo shirt. Lovely guy btw - had a good 5 minute natter with him despite the hoooge queue that was still behind me.


#32

Progress! I went to the Wrestlemania weekend show in NOLA, no ZSJ, but did get to meet Pete Dunne and Walter. I also purchased a classic Progress logo Tee-shirt.


#33

Pretty much the only wrestling shirt I could wear out of the house and not feel embarrassed.


#34

More!

They’ve been counting down to 15:00 today so I’m not sure if this has come early or if there will be another video, or something else


#35

First impressions: Could take or leave this one. For some reason made me want to listen to Queen Of Hearts by Fucked Up straight after, which is a far superior song.


#36

I just got a notification from Bandsintown of a Kentish Town forum show in October so maybe a tour announcement?


#37

World tour and album release (31 August)


#38

Preordered the album and Booked tickets for Bristol on the 16th

Cannot wait (for both) :laughing:


#39

Realised that Idles really remind me of Rohnert Park-era Ceremony


#40

Smashed it last night! Don’t think they’re capable of putting on a bad show. They played the same venue last year to 40-50 people max… easily 300 last night. Was a bit disappointed they didn’t play Colossus but there was a few bouncey new ones in there to make up for it. Bring on the new album
