Idles have released a sixth video from their UK number one album Ultra Mono.

The animated video for Kill Them With Kindness was directed and designed by James Carbutt and animated by Pip Williamson.

Speaking about the video, Carbutt says, "The dingy pub setting in the film is based on the Working Men’s Clubs of my hometown (Barnsley). It was nice to imagine Idles bursting in and spreading a message of love. During our research we discovered that no two Wetherspoons carpets are the same, they are all unique like snowflakes, so yeah making this film was a wild ride."

Pandemic permitting, Idles will tour the UK and Ireland in May/June/July, with support coming from Jehnny Beth, Anna Calvi, Cate le Bon, Sinead O Brien, Big Joanie, Witch Fever, Shopping and wych elm.
