Idles today release the animated video to fan-favourite and album highlight “Never Fight a Man with a Perm”.

The video was put together by the team behind Fluffer Records (Al Brown, Russell Taysom & Stella Belle Hex), who have said the following about the concept:
“The idea for the "Never Fight a Man with a Perm" video came directly from the lyrics of the song and how it tackles the subject of toxic masculinity. Using a British take on the classic arcade beat ‘em up platform game seemed like a cool way to put this across visually”.

The band recently announced a short tour for December to celebrate a landmark couple of years for the band - including their biggest headlining date yet on Saturday, 7th December at London’s Alexandra Palace. All five dates went on to sell out within the first 24 hours.

UK Tour Dates 2019:
Mon 2 Dec Glasgow, Barrowland Ballroom (Sold Out)
Tue 3 Dec Glasgow, Barrowland Ballroom (Sold Out)
Wed 4 Dec Manchester, Academy (Sold Out)
Thu 5 Dec Leeds, O2 Academy (Sold Out)
Sat 7 Dec London, Alexandra Palace (Sold Out)

The band’s latest release “Mercedes Marxist” is currently A-listed at 6 Music and will be released physically on August 2nd as a 7". The single will include another new song on its B-side, entitled “I Dream Guillotine”. Both tracks were written and recorded during the band's sessions for “Joy as an Act of Resistance”. and pre-orders are available here.

Idles last run of London shows, three consecutive dates at The Electric Ballroom in April, all sold out in minutes – and on December 7th this year they return to Alexandra Palace, this time as the headliners. Their biggest headline performance yet, it culminates a remarkable last couple of years for a band who have never given us anything less than everything. As well as a chance to celebrate all that has come before, it will also be the first opportunity for people to hear much-anticipated new material from an-as-yet untitled third album set for 2020.
