Battles Release New Single, Tour US

New York cyborg-rock trio Battles just recently dropped one of our favorite records this year, the baffling Gloss Drop, and is already gearing up to release more tireless polyrhythms and melodic gymnastics on the world in the forms of a new single and a US tour. The limited-edition 12" for "My Machines (feat. Gary Numan)" (pictured above) will be available on August 15, and will feature the original tune along with an instrumental version and brand-new cut "A.M. Gestalt." Then there is the tour, which will kick off on July 15 in Chicago, IL at the Pitchfork Music Festival.
