Warm Up TCU3 with IDLES > Postpunk  |  Postpunk/ Indie-/ Boogierock
10/11/2018 - Leipzig - UT Connewitz
Performing Artists:

This is the Warm Up Event for the third edition of the TransCentury Update Festival, taking place at UT Connewitz in Leipzig. We are over the top excited to announce that the Bristol based, self-proclaimed "angry band" IDLES is coming to play their first ever show in Leipzig.

IDLES released their debut LP "Brutalism" in 2017 and redefined the meaning of punk. The refreshing, ferocious heaviness of the album, and its brilliantly satirical lyrics were a welcome new sound in the arguably imitable alternative scene. 2018 is blessed with a new IDLES release called "Joy as an Act of Resistance" - the first Single "Colossus" is already very promising, and we expect nothing but a good show when they will play Leipzig on their upcoming tour.

“IDLES are hard to capture, because they're not Fat White Family, they're not Sleaford Mods, they are very much their own incarnation of uncompromising rhythmical punk rock. Lyrically, a mixture of dry obsessional humour and poetic slogans. But, best of all, they really get the adrenalin pumping.“ (Steve Lamacq, BBC6 Music)
