IDLES return with their new album, Crawler – an album of reflection and healing amid a worldwide pandemic that stretched the planet’s collective mental and physical health to the breaking point. Frontman Joe Talbot says: “We want people who’ve gone through trauma, heartbreak, and loss to feel like they’re not alone, and also how it is possible to reclaim joy from those experiences.” IDLES albums have always been anchored by these overarching themes, but the ability of the band to juxtapose beauty and rage with humour and drama has never felt more satisfying than on Crawler.
Note: The LP is available on limited-edition ‘eco-mix’ coloured vinyl, housed in a single-sleeve jacket and printed inner sleeve. The deluxe vinyl is mastered at half-speed and pressed at 45rpm on deluxe double heavyweight 180g black vinyl, housed in a gatefold jacket with printed inner sleeves.
