IDLES have curated an art exhibition that coincides with their forthcoming album Joy as an Act of Resistance, and will donate the money made to the Samaritans charity.

Bristol's IDLES are putting together an art exhibition in London to celebrate their second album Joy as an Act of Resistance.

The exhibition will be open for two days, between 12- 8pm on 30-31 August.

Artwork will be contributed by artists such as Orlando Weeks (The Maccabees), Nigel Talbot, Tao Lapsley, Russell Oliver, Robin Stewart, Tom Ham and more.

There will be 18 pieces of art up to view and buy, with all proceeds going to the Samaritans charity.

Earlier this month the gritty group revealed their latest single "Samaritans", which takes a hit at stereotypes surrounding the male gender.

IDLES have also announced a series of record shop in-store performances to coincide with the album. Find out more.

The Bristolian band also perform at London's Roundhouse and O2 Forum Kentish Town on 17-18 October.

Joy as an Act of Resistence is out 31 August via Partisan Records. The exhibition takes place at London's HM Electrics Gallery on 30-31 August and is free entry.
