As excitement for third album Ultra Mono ramps up, IDLES have announced accompanying tour dates next May throughout the UK and Ireland.

Founding their reputation as Britain's hardest-working band on their penchant for continually performing live and engaging with their avid fanbase/AF Gang, the Bristol punk's return to playing will provide some respite for those of us missing out on their powerhouse live shows. 

With an allocation of free tickets for key workers at each date, IDLES will bring their new album to Manchester's Victoria Warehouse, Cardiff's Motorpoint Arena, amongst back-to-back shows at Glasgow's Barrowland Ballroom, Dublin's Vicar Street, and London's Brixton Academy.

The past few months must have been bizarre for everyone involved in live music, so fingers crossed IDLES can return to the live realm - where they truly thrive - without any hitches.
