Everyone’s favorite math-rock troop is putting its money where its mouth is. Following the band’s highly acclaimed Warp debut, Mirrored, Battles continues its travels across the US (and weirdly, paying special attention to Florida).

Now labelmates with Boards of Canada and Flying Lotus, the band has assembled a following that isn’t exactly reliant on old heshers dressed in Melvins T-shirts. This may have something to do with the foursome’s progressive songwriting. Avoiding predictability, the guys utilize an array of analog effects, minimal synth lines, vocals-as-instrumentation, and the choppy speed of a thousand Dillenger Escape Plans. Battles has come to speed things up like a methed-out algebra teacher.
