IDLES decided to perform three new tracks during their huge London Alexandra Palace show on Saturday (7 December).

The Bristol band wrapped up their UK tour with their biggest show to date on Saturday (7 December), and gave fans a treat by performing three new tracks.

As well as performing fan favourites from their Joy as an Act of Resistence and Brutalism albums, IDLES performed "Grounds", which they debuted at an earlier show on their UK tour. Check out a snippet of the anthemic track below.

According to the setlist, IDLES also debuted two other tracks. They opened their show with new song "War", and closed their sold-out show with "Danke", which they performed for the first time with the help of support acts METZ and Giant Swan.

The band are still yet to follow up their 2019 Mercury Prize-nominated album Joy as an Act of Resistence. Back in September, IDLES revealed they had been in the studio working with The Bad Seeds’ Warren Ellis on their new record.

Last week IDLES teamed up with Signature Brew to launch their own limited edition lager called KRFSHT. Its name was chosen by vocalist Joe Talbot, and represents the sound of a can opening.
