Our good friends at ATP (All Tomorrow’s Parties) have kindly given us a pair of tickets to give away for the Battles show at the HMV Forum on the 21st of November.

For those who aren’t familiar with Battles’ angular math-rock check out Atlas from their first album, Mirrored, back in 2007. Their second album, Gloss Drop, was released in June this year and features guest contributions from Gary Numan, Kazu Makino from Blonde Redhead and Yamantaka Eye; best known as a member of the band Boredoms.

Battles will be supported by NISENNENMONDAI; the Tokyo-based all female instrumental trio will be blasting their freewheeling post-rock anthems which should make for an amazing night.

Battles will also be playing at All Tomorrows Parties’ Nightmare Before Christmas at Minehead in December.
