Scottish alt-rockers led by Roddy Woomble. Passionate rock’n’roll, brimming with restrained aggression, they reached their biggest level of success with singles You Held The World In Your Arms and American English. The band released their last album Post Electric Blues in 2009. Since then, frontman Roddy Woomble has released several solo albums, while guitarist Rod Jones has released material under his own name in addition to forming the band The Birthday Suit.
In 2014, after 4-year hiatus, Idlewild returned, completing a sold out acoustic tour of unique, intimate venues throughout the Highlands & Islands of Scotland, re-introducing themselves to live audiences after a half-decade break, performing re-worked versions of old songs as well as new material.
