Hungarian Post-Hardcore Veterans The Idoru Return with New Single “This Ship Will Sail”

New Album 'Undertow' Out April 26

Budapest, Hungary post-hardcore vets The Idoru have returned with new single + video “This Ship Will Sail,” the follow up to the album’s lead single “The King Is Naked” which debuted in February. 

They will release their new LP Undertow via Swedish label Black Star Foundation on April 26.

After a decade-long hiatus, The Idoru made a powerful comeback in 2020 with a new 3-song EP titled Old Songs, Originating in 2003, the band boasts an extensive history, undertaking headlining tours across Europe and Japan. They’ve also shared the stage with notable acts like Ignite during their Japan tour and iconic punk band Misfits on select European tours. Over the years, The Idoru has released four albums and several EPs.

Hailing from Budapest, Hungary, The Idoru emerged in 2003, founded by former members of the Hungarian hardcore band, Newborn. In their inaugural year, the band quickly gained traction with local gigs and expanded to international shows. After establishing a foundation, they embarked on their first recording venture in the fall, resulting in the release of the three-song debut EP, After the Storm, during a New Year’s Eve live performance. This initial collaboration with the legendary Japanese record label Alliance-Trax paved the way for their debut album, Brand New Way, Brand New Situation, recorded in late 2004.

The Idoru’s musical fusion encompasses the forces of metal, hardcore, and punk rock genres, resulting in a dynamic and progressive sound.
