battles 2011 Battles announce 2011 tour dates

Battles’ sophomore LP Gloss Drop is already four years coming, but if you can’t stand to wait another month ahead of its June 7th drop date, then check out the band on the road this for an early preview. Following scheduled trips to Japan and Europe, Battles will arrive stateside April 26th for an 8-date trek. Boston gets first dibs, with the band then hitting New York, Toronto, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Portland before capping off their travels on May 5th in Seattle. After that, it’s on to Europe for another batch of performances, which now includes a just announced gig at ATP’s Nightmare Before Christmas, where they’ll also be curating one day of the festival.

Tickets for most U.S. dates go on sale today, and you can find complete ticketing info on the band’s website.

As mentioned, Gloss Drop arrives June 7th via Warp Records. We’ll post more details on the album and any additional tour dates when they become available.
