NEWS: IDLES Sign With Partisan Records, Announce March North American Shows

Bristol, UK rock band IDLES has announced that they have signed with Partisan Records. The band will be releasing their recently-finished, yet-to-be-titled sophomore album via the label soon.

Vocalist Joe Talbot commented:

“IDLES have signed to Partisan Records. This is not a decision based on greed. They excite us and have injected ideas and passions into our camp that we would not have mustered. We as a family have realised our limitations in as far as the ship we have built with you all is becoming too much for the team we have to achieve the best of our abilities. It was time to admit a necessity for help but we needed that to come in the form of trusted, earnest and like-minded people who were as passionate about our art and you people as we were: Partisan Records are the partners we were looking for. We haven’t been given a huge wedge of cash but instead a huge wedge of confidence that we are in safe hands and make no mistake, we are not going to stop working fucking hard for you and ourselves.”

Partisan Records owner Tim Putnam commented on the signing:

“We’re very excited to welcome IDLES to our roster. They are an altogether necessary band for the times we live in and we are honoured to have been trusted as their chosen partners. As Joe says: All Is Love!”

To go along with the signing announcement, the band has also announced that they will be playing a string of shows in Brooklyn, Philadelphia and Toronto this March. For the dates and venues of these shows, check it out below.
