Idlewar Release ‘On Our Knees’ New Music Video

We are passionate about rock music, pure and simple. ‘On Our Knees’  is our take on what we love, and a firm nod to what makes this band tick” – Idlewar

Watch ‘On Our Knees’ (music video) –


In just over two weeks, Orange County, Californian hard rock trio Idlewar will officially unveil their ‘Impulse’ full-length debut. Produced by drummer Pete Pagonis and mastered by Brian Lucey (Ghost ‘Meliora’, Black Keys ‘El Camino’, Arctic Monkeys ‘AM’, plus albums by David, ‘Twin Peaks’ ‘Dune’, Lynch) the new album is released 30th September 2016 via PHD, and delivers a truly rewarding enriched audio landscape.

In advance of its release, today Idlewar offers up the new song and accompanying music video ‘On Our Knees’, the 2nd single to be lifted from their forthcoming debut album (following the release of lead track ‘Criminal’). Whereas ‘Criminal’ is a groove drenched, cheeky nod to the introduction of ‘Impulse’, ‘On Our Knees’ finds Idlewar with their foot to the floor, delivering a knockout punch with its gutsy overdrive tone, yet still maintaining melody and hooks-a-plenty with effortless ease. The lo-fi-esque raw visuals of the O.C. trio’s new live video, combined with the driven sonics, makes ‘On Your Knees’ another reason why you need to check this band out.

In support of the forthcoming new album, Idlewar embark on their debut UK tour this coming November/December, as special guests to Stone Broken. Their time in the UK will also see the Californians play Planet Rock Radio’s ‘RockStock’. The sold out 3 day festival is headlined by The Dead Daisies, British Lion (Steve Harris, Iron Maiden) and Black Stone Cherry.

“This is not just about being able to play music that we’ve written for appreciative fans. It’s also about meeting these amazing people that we have connected with. We see a passion in fans that matches the passion we put into this music.”  – Idlewar

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
