IDLES today release the animated video to fan-favourite and album highlight “Never Fight A Man With A Perm”. The video was put together by the team behind Fluffer Records (Al Brown, Russell Taysom & Stella Belle Hex) who have said the following about the concept:
“The idea for the “Never Fight A Man With A Perm” video came directly from the lyrics of the song and how it tackles the subject of toxic masculinity. Using a British take on the classic arcade beat ’em up platform game seemed like a cool way to put this across visually.”
The band recently announced a short tour for December to celebrate a landmark couple of years for the band – including their biggest headlining date yet on Saturday, 7th December at London’s Alexandra Palace. All five dates went on to sell out within the first 24 hours.
