Following Brutalism (2017) and Joy as an Act of Resistance (2018), two releases that garnered global critical acclaim, IDLES return with their highly anticipated third album – Ultra Mono. Sonically constructed to capture the feeling of a hip-hop record (including production contribution from Kenny Beats), the album doubles down on the vitriolic sneer and blunt social commentary of their past work. Not far beneath the surface of their self-admitted sloganeering lies a deeply complex and brutally relevant album that chews up clichés and spits them out as high art for the masses. This is momentary acceptance of the self. This is Ultra Mono.
Ultra Mono will be released on 25th September 2020 on Partisan Records.
Available on Standard black vinyl LP, Limited Edition Vortex Vinyl LP, Deluxe black vinyl LP in gatefold sleeve with 28 page catalogue, Digipack CD, Cassette
Release date: 25th September 2020
