Nigel Godrich's From The Basement live music series is returning next week with new episodes featuring IDLES, Warpaint, Caribou and more.

From The Basement ran for two series between 2006 and 2009, and this afternoon (25 May) it's been announced that the series, produced by Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, Arcade Fire, Beck) with partners James Chads and John Woollcombe, will return with some new episodes next month.

IDLES will kick off the new series on 1 June, and the new series will also feature performances from Warpaint, Caribou, Sons of Kemet, Squid and Nilüfer Yanya.

Joe Talbot of IDLES said, "There’s an atmosphere on From The Basement that I haven’t seen equalled - it’s unlike anything else. There’s a sense of mythology behind it and it’s a dream for us to be involved. We’ve wanted to do this for a very long time."

"What a pleasure it has been doing this again! I’m still just a fan, still super excited to have the opportunity to film all these great artists and have loved making these new shows," Nigel Godrich said. "After being so busy doing other things I felt that the time was right to rekindle this idea.. to somehow bring it into the present, but the same rules apply now as they did then… no audience or presenter.. just a direct connection with the viewer and a chance for us to take some time to do something special in a controlled environment.. The priority being to make it sound and look great…"

Each episode will feature an additional song for every artist released exclusively to WeTransfer Premium and Pro subscribers, and the audio versions of the sets will launch via an exclusive From The Basement station on Sonos Radio.

IDLES will relaunch From The Basement next Wednesday (1 June) at 6pm BST via the From The Basement YouTube channel.
