Battles to Tour "Small Venues" This Spring and Summer

Since the announcement of the sophomore LP to come June 7 from the three NYC genre defiers in Battles (via Warp), the anxiousness for hearing what the insanely innovative outfit has created is palpable, but now, we're offered just a bit of relief. Battles is hitting the road in the months before Gloss Drop, uh, drops, playing almost exclusively in "small venues." Starting on April 1, the trio will be trekking across Europe, Japan, and North America until just a few of days after its album release. Some of the dates have already sold out, some go on sale this afternoon, and some are available now. You can find all links to purchase tickets here, and the full list of dates below.
