Ultra Mono

  • IDLES - Ultra Mono
25th September 2020 / CD, LP & Tape / Partisan Records
“Idles’ third studio album has all of the elements that made 'Joy As an Act of Resistance' such a breakout success: pummelling riffs, muscular choruses seemingly precision-tooled for being bellowed back into the band’s faces by a sweaty crowd and Joe Talbot’s distinctive turn of phrase.”


Ultra Mono


An epic return. 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

+ Limited Edition on coloured vortex vinyl

+ Limited Deluxe Edition gatefold packaging with 28 page debossed Ultra Mono catalogue

+ Initial preorders of any of the LP formats will ship with an exclusive art print. ** These have now sold out. **

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.
