Meanwhile, IDLES released a brand new song titled ‘I Dream Guillotine’ earlier this month. The track serves as the b-side to their latest single, ‘Mercedes Marxist’.

The Bristol band are one of the acts nominated for this year’s Mercury Music Prize, with their album ‘Joy As An Act Of Resistance’ in the running for the award. Speaking to NME at the nominations launch, frontman Joe Talbot said of the record: “The album was a process of finding my own voice and listening to myself; finding ways of being listened to in a community and in our country, which is the problem going on at the moment. No one feels like they’re being represented and this second album, was about representing yourself internally, finding your own voice and then communicating that with others.”
