Album artwork for Joy As An Act Of Resistance by IDLES

Rough Trade Albums of the Year 2018 No. 3

#1 Album of the Month - September 2018

IDLES release their highly anticipated sophomore album Joy as an Act of Resistance that takes aim at everything from toxic masculinity, nationalism, immigration, and class inequality.

Special AOTY Exclusive: Limited run of 600 T-shirts designed by IDLES frontman Joe Talbot

Bristol, UK 5-piece IDLES (aka “the UK's best punk band" - The Guardian) have confirmed details for their anticipated sophomore LP Joy as an Act of Resistance via Partisan Records. Joe Talbot, Mark Bowen, Lee Kiernan, Adam Devonshire and Jon Beavis crank up their weapons once more and power-drop a second long player. Space produces, Adam Greenspan and Nick Launay (Kate Bush/Arcade Fire) mixes.

Bristol’s finest Kings of exquisitely noisy post-punk pick off pointed targets singing about nationalism, class warfare, sexist wankers (or toxic masculinity as they put it) and more. Rowdy tunes of hollering and gut-wrenching searing viscerality crowd the speakers for dancefloor decimating space. Building from an ominous growl to a full-on howl of exuberant explosively emotive power this is a full on tilt of finely honed and powerful anthems.

Joe from IDLES came to raid Rough Trade West of some new releases he's been enjoying lately including Bambara, Beak>, Anna Calvi and more. Check out all of his Shoplifting selections here.
