TANGK is, at its core, a love album. Open to anyone who requires something to shout out loud in order to fend off any encroaching sense of the void, now or forever. Following four studio albums, IDLES are indie-famous, but the goal of this campaign is to make them famous-famous, in other words, the band your mom’s friend likes.

TANGK is the brightest boldest record yet from a band with two GRAMMY nominations, a BRIT Award nomination, a Mercury Music Prize shortlist, and UK #1 album in their wake. TANGK is also a bona fide pop record in a way we’ve never heard from IDLES before, that is, something for everyone to pass around and share, communal anthems intended for overcoming our grievances. The word - pronounced “tank” with a whiff of the “g” - began as an onomatopoeic reference in-studio for the sound of a guitar tone, but has grown into a sigil for living in love. Joe sings on TANGK in a way we’ve never heard before, completing his transformation from post-punk firebrand into soul singing evangelist. TANGK was co-produced by Nigel Godrich, Kenny Beats, and Mark Bowen (from IDLES). The contrast between Joe’s magnetic force-of-nature and Bowen’s contemplative + studied production wizardry has never been more complete and compelling than it is on TANGK.
