Catalogue WAP319

The gargantuan return of one of the world's most exciting alternative bands.

Battles are back with 'Ice Cream', a "grunty, squelchy, jubilant freakout" according to NME and 'The Hottest Record in the World' according to Radio 1 (the first foreign language Hottest Record since Bjork) – a calypso tinged rhythmic juggernaut powering through the airwaves of Radio 1, XFM and 6Music.

The record is released as a very limited 12" (400 in the UK), backed with a previously unreleased track – and serves as an appetiser for the album 'Gloss Drop' which arrives a fortnight  later. Who says you can't have dessert first?

The band have played an intimate date at London's ICA – sold out in an hour, and return for regional and London shows at the start and end of June, before embarking on a full festival run including Wireless and a headline slot at Standon Calling.

"Bands don't come much more interesting, warped, extraordinary and pleasantly challenging than NYC's Battles. Every record is awaited with baited breath, and so enjoy tonight's Hottest – Ice Cream by one hell of a band" - Huw Stephens, Radio 1.

"I love it...absolutely ace, good to have them back"Lauren Laverne, 6Music.
