The group have set up camp at South Wales' Monnow Valley Studio, where Pulp, Oasis, and, Iggy Azalea have all cut tunes.

Idles have been working on the follow up to their debut LP for a while, and even debuted a handful of tracks last October at Simple Things Festival in their hometown. Shortly ahead of that fest we spoke to frontman Joe Talbot about the band's 2018 plans, and he told us that Idles "are working on album two now. That is our only focus."
