Ahead of the release of Ultra Mono, we spoke to IDLES' Joe Talbot in the new issue of Hot Press – out this week. In the interview, Talbot reflects on class divides, self-acceptance, the state of England, online hate, Black Lives Matter, Fontaines D.C., and why the Bristol band's new album is their most important work yet.
