BATTLES ANNOUNCE UK HEADLINE DATES
Tickets on sale 9am Friday 17th July http://gigst.rs/battles
Following their sold out show at The Dome Tufnell Park in London earlier this year, Battles have today announced two very special UK dates for October 2015. Having re-emerged after a lengthy hiatus, the band are back on the road with a busy touring schedule and catalogue of new music.
Battles has been anything but a conventional band. As result of its constant forward-momentum – musically and conceptually – Battles albums have placed the band amongst the most innovative of Warp Records’ roster. Battles’ yet-to-be-announced third album is their most future-leaning yet; a new piece in an un-planned trilogy that began with Battles as a four-piece on Mirrored, continued with a bold leap into collaboration on Gloss Drop, now culminating in John Stanier of Helmet and Tomahawk, Dave Konopka of Lynx and Ian Williams of Don Caballero and Storm & Stress pushing the sonic limits of how conventional instruments and electronics meld.
Battles started up playing Warp25 in Krakow, Poland, last September, showing off raw iterations of new music from the first time. With ever-increasing waves of middling electronic producers vying for attention, Battles stand out on their own more than ever as THE band that can unite techno lovers, progressive rock aficionados and experimental enthusiasts of all stripes. 2015 is going to be an exciting year of new music and live shows.
Performing two headline shows at Manchester Academy 2 on Friday 23rd October and London’s Electric Ballroom on Wednesday 28th October, these are set to be an unmissable show.
