IDLES sign to Partisan Records | Album two finished

IDLES sign to Partisan Records | Album two finished

IdlesAfter a landmark 2017 for the band, Bristol’s IDLES are proud to begin 2018 with the news that they have finished recording their second album and with the announcement that they have signed to Partisan Records.

“IDLES have signed to Partisan Records. This is not a decision based on greed. They excite us and have injected ideas and passions into our camp that we would not have mustered. We as a family have realised our limitations in as far as the ship we have built with you all is becoming too much for the team we have to achieve the best of our abilities. It was time to admit a necessity for help but we needed that to come in the form of trusted, earnest and like-minded people who were as passionate about our art and you people as we were: Partisan Records are the partners we were looking for. We haven’t been given a huge wedge of cash but instead a huge wedge of confidence that we are in safe hands and make no mistake, we are not going to stop working fucking hard for you and ourselves.”
Joe Talbot, IDLES

Partisan Records was co-founded in Brooklyn in 2007 by Tim Putnam and Ian Wheeler and now has offices in New York, London and LA. They have previously worked with the likes of Cigarettes After Sex, Deer Tick, Torres, Eagulls and John Grant.

“We’re very excited to welcome IDLES to our roster. They are an altogether necessary band for the times we live in and we are honoured to have been trusted as their chosen partners. As Joe says: All Is Love!”
Tim Putnam, Partisan Records

Fri March 9 – Brooklyn NY @ Ceremony
Sat March 10 – Brooklyn NY @ Flowers For All Occasions
