Today, IDLES have shared a new video for album track “Carcinogenic”.

Speaking about Independent Venue Week, guitarist Mark Bowen says:

“Now more than ever independent musicians and the music industry at large need to unite to keep from being decimated. Between the pandemic and a government who not only don’t care about the future of the arts (especially independence within the arts) but take a pro-active role in its diminishment, independent venues are at greatest risk because they are mostly small businesses, not interested in profit or investors but in the nourishment of creative, open-minded, critical thinking.

Independent venues are the fertile soil in which the future of the performing arts will grow. They are where your future favourite band will play, where the best song ever written will be tested out, where the new can bud and flourish.

They are also vital for a sense of community and union, something people sorely need and miss at this time, without them we’re all fucked”

IDLES – “CARCINOGENIC

In addition to this special performance, IDLES will also be undertaking a live AMA with fans on their Instagram account to talk about the importance of venues and how crucial they were to the growth of the band. The live AMA will take place at 7PM GMT on Saturday 30th Jan.
