Joy as an Act of Resistance, the sophomore album from IDLES, takes aim at everything from toxic masculinity, nationalism, immigration, and class inequality - all while maintaining a visceral, infectious positivity.
The critically-acclaimed album features the singles "Colossus", "Danny Nedelko", "Samaritans", "Great" and "Never Fight a Man with a Perm".
Singer Joe summarizes: “This album is an attempt to be vulnerable to our audience and to encourage vulnerability; a brave naked smile in this shitty new world. We have stripped back the songs and lyrics to our bare flesh to allow each other to breathe, to celebrate our differences, and act as an ode to communities and the individuals that forge them. Because without our community, we’d be nothing.”
