A third album from Idles is on its way, and we have a wild taste of it in the form of new single Model Village.

If it isn’t enough that the song rocks, it also has a brilliant animated video constructed by Michel and Olivier Gondry using both handmade and CGI techniques.

Says frontman Joe Talbot of the song: “I hated growing up in a city that was really a town that was really a fishbowl. I left as soon as I could, only to realise the fishbowl didn’t exist… just the fish, and they’re everywhere.”

Meanwhile, that new album, Ultra Mono, is set for release on September 25. Ahead of its release, Idles are hosting a series of three live performances from Abbey Road, each with unique setlists. These are set to take place on August 29 and 30. Tickets are available now – you can grab more info here.
