IDLES Share New Video for “Beachland Ballroom”

IDLES have just announced their return with new album CRAWLER, out November 12 via Partisan, their fourth in as many years and the follow-up to their first No. 1, 2019’s Ultra Mono. And today they have shared a new video for its first single, “The Beachland Ballroom (Official Video, Pt. 2).” The song, named after the iconic Ohio venue, is an honest-to-goodness soul song featuring a gorgeous, gripping vocal performance from frontman Joe Talbot. Directed by IDLES in collaboration with LOOSE.

On CRAWLER, the group brings to life vivid stories of trauma, addiction and recovery with its most soul-stirring music to date. The 14-track project was recorded at the famed Real World Studios in Bath during the COVID-19 pandemic and co-produced by Kenny Beats (Vince Staples, Freddie Gibbs) and IDLES guitarist Mark Bowen.
