Battles Start U.S. Tour Today

 

By: Spacelab Research Staff
With their new album out now and smashing people's ear drums all around the world, Battles will now set out on smashing ear drums in a live setting, night after night, as they tour around the U.S. this summer. They're touring in support of the album Mirrored, out now on Warp Records.

Check out the video above to see Battles playing the song Tonto live at the Ether Festival in London in March of this year. The video was created by Warp Films.

Battles has been almost portrayed as the "Boston" of indie rock in the past — that is that they are the closest thing that you can get to a supergroup in the indie world. Warp apparently had more than a feeling that Battles would accomplish big things, so they signed the band back in 2005. Battles features members that have been a part of or contributed to: Don Caballero, Helmet, Tomahawk, Lynx, and Prefuse 73.
