Formed in 1995, Idlewild’s marriage of punk rock, poetry and Highland spirit saw them grow from a raucous cult curiosity into chart-bothering national treasures. Growing more mature and masterful with melody they dropped six acclaimed albums and two compilations before deciding to take a break in 2010.
Living life and continuing solo ventures filled their time away and a few years passed before they came back together for 2015’s ‘Everything Ever Written’. Wondering if there was still a hunger for Idlewild, the band’s own compulsion and flair translated into one of the most ambitious records of their career. With it came critical praise, an album in the top 20 and successful tours of the UK, Japan and America with the band selling out venues as large as they ever had.
