Battles Extend 2011 Tour

Battles have added some North American shows to their 2011 trek. Following a few stops in Europe, the experimental rockers will kick off their new leg at ATP’s “I’ll Be Your Mirror” festival in Asbury Park, NJ on October 1. The group’s excursion will come to an end in New York, NY on November 1 after a run of shows along the East Coast. In December, the band will be playing ATP’s Nightmare Before Christmas in Minehead.

Tickets for the new dates go on sale starting June 10.

The band’s new record, ‘Gloss Drop,’ was released on June 7 in North America and a day earlier everywhere else via Warp Records.
