Earlier this month, frontman Joe Talbot revealed IDLES were already working on their next record, following the release of ‘Ultra Mono’ in September.

In an interview at virtual guitar show Guitar.com Live, broadcast October 3, guitarist Lee Kiernan also said that work had already begun on the new album, with 30 songs “on the table” for album four.

“The premise is that we like to keep moving quickly, to keep writing when we’re excited and we want to,” he said.

Reviewing ‘Ultra Mono’, NME wrote: “This record fuses the first album’s goofy sense of humour with ‘Joy As An Act Of Resistance”s brazen manifesto for a healthier society. Despite their imperfections and the often justified criticism, IDLES are ultimately a good thing. The band want to take you on a trip and for you to enjoy the ride, and for the destination to be serene. Hold on tight.”
