Battles are currently in the studio recording a new album, according to a report in NME.
They are currently recording at Machines With Magnets in Pawtucket, Rhode Island on the follow up to their 2007 release Mirrored. There's no word of a release date or possible track list yet.
The band have been writing the music in the Times Square area of New York, and are sure that its legendary reputation will be an influence on the album.
"Where we are is really seedy. It reminds me of old school Midnight Cowboy-era New York. Most of that area has been Bloomberged into consumerism, ESPN zones and Broadway shows, but on the outskirts there's little pockets of vice. We're playing right above a jack shop," Dave Konopka told NME.
