Battles Announce 2011 Trek

Experimental rock supergroup Battles will be hitting the road in support of their sophomore LP, ‘Gloss Drop.’

The almost 30-date trek will take the band from Japan to the UK, stopping at festivals along the way.

Battles have also revealed that they will be curating ATP’s Nightmare Before Christmas festival this December.

‘Gloss Drop’ is set for release on June 7 in the US (and a day earlier everywhere else).
