Idle Threats formed in early 2000, at the turn of the century. And it seems, you could almost say, have been doomed from the get go. From numerous break-ups, to numerous members (some not even knowing their instrument), from pawn shop to pawn shop, drunken fights to glorious shows, to all too many blacked out shows, from broken instruments to broken down, and possibly stolen, vans, this is a band that has still not given up, and probably never will.
Hailing from Medford, Oregon, they have shared the stage with bands such as The Observers, The Midnight Creeps, The Shemps, Hudson Falcons, The Hollowbodys, Blueprint For Disaster, The Casualties, Larry & His Flask, Time Again, BOATS!, Jewdriver, Naked Aggression, DOA, RF7, and many, many others.
After recording their latest demo, A Long Ride From Hell, last year, they, once again, parted ways. But now back and stronger than ever, are ready to dive head first into whatever may come their way. Kicking off this rekindled spirit, they will be embarking on a 20 day West Coast tour, starting in late August.
So in a time when Greed, Power, Money, and all the other filth ruins this sick world, Idle Threats will be the band that is not here to impress, nor compromise, just to show the world what it seems to have forgotten this day and age, a good time. Because when mainstream music has lost all attitude and spirit of a time when it once was, Idle Threats have come to revive that spirit, leaving a trail of blood, sweat, tears, and alcohol in their path.
FUCK ‘EM ALL
