Battles at Kantine Berghain / Tuesday, 30.08.2022

US math-rockers Battles make a very welcome return to Berlin for a special live concert at Hole 44 in Neukölln this August.

Battles are set to return October 18 with their fourth album Juice B Crypts via Warp Records. Following in the wake of its complex, mind-bending predecessors Mirrored, Gloss Drop, and La Di Da Di, the new full length is a sensory overload of information that throws everything you thought you knew about the storied art-rock supergroup into flux once again.

The band’s redefined line-up of Ian Williams (keys, guitar, electronics) and John Stanier (drums) is at the core of the covertly named Juice B Crypts, which was produced and mixed by Chris Tabron (Trash Talk, Beyonce, Mobb Deep, Ratking). Marrying synthesizer loops, cut-throat drum patterns, and cyclical riffs, the album flirts with new technology, questions of authenticity, and the technicalities of reinventing the wheel at the eleventh hour.
