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.

The Idoru

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.

By the fall of 2004, The Idoru joined the roster of the Austrian label Burning Season Records, releasing the full-length album in February 2005. After recording their third record, ‘Hopeless Illusions EP,’ in 2005, the band made a strategic move to Deadbutcher Records. In 2020, The Idoru partnered with the Swedish record label Black Star Foundation to release a new 3-song EP and subsequently are preparing to release their latest 10-song album, ‘Undertow.’

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