Prior to that, they return to the US for their third tour this year. Dates for the headline tour have not yet been confirmed.

According to the band’s official website, www.idlewild.co.uk, they have now recorded a total of nine songs for their as-yet untitled new album. As previously reported on NME.COM, the Scots quartet have spent a week working with Patti Smith guitarist Lenny Kaye at Magic Shop studios in New York. Kaye’s previous production credits include ‘Hips And Makers’ by Kristin Hersh.

Following their festival appearances, they return to the studio to complete the album, and it is slated for release early next year.
