If you thought IDLES couldn’t make this year anymore emphatic for themselves than they already have, prepare yourself. The Bristol band are ticking another big moment off the list by appearing on Late Night With Jools Holland tonight. The band will be in the esteemed company of Jess Glynne, Soft Cell, King Princess and Ralph McTell.

In a post on Facebook the band stated “This is a dream come true. Make no mistake; this is a moment we will never forget and we will deliver all that we have and love.”

The show, the first episode of it’s 53rd series, is live tonight on BBC Two at 10pm and is followed by an extended episode on Friday.

The appearance is right in the middle of the band’s world tour, which is currently tearing through the US. It stops off for a massive hometown show in Bristol at SWX on 16th October with Heavy Lungs in support.
