IDLES will play a surprise show at Project House, Leeds, this Thursday at 8.30pm.

Tickets will be available today at 5pm when fans purchase a Crash Records bundle of new album Tangk at

The Bristol band are teaming up with Leeds record shop Crash Records, in The Headrow, for this special “outstore gig”.

“What a week,” say Idles, who released fifth studio album Tangk last Friday. “We have been blown away by your love and energy. To show our appreciation we’ve partnered with the beautiful folks at @Crash_Records for an outstore at @projecthouselds  this Thursday!”

Tangk features earlier singles Gift Horse and Dancer, the song that featured guest backing vocals from LCD Soundsystem duo James Murphy and Nancy Whang.

Last week Idles also teamed up with Chris Martin (and deepfake AI) for a re-creation of Coldplay’s Yellow in their video for latest single Grace.

After a whirlwind few days in New York last week where the band performed on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Idles returned home to launch their new album with apop-up shop in Shoreditch and a week of special shows in London, Bristol and now Leeds.

Idles will return to West Yorkshire for a sold-out open-air concert at the Piece Hall, Halifax, on July 13.
