Battles will play a one-off London show at The Dome in Tufnell Park on May 27.
The performance is part of four European dates the band are due to play next month, which also includes shows in Austria, France and Germany. Tickets for the London show go on sale tomorrow (April 29).
The announcement comes almost exactly a year after the New York trio took to Twitter to tease fans with the promise of a new album. Posting a picture taken in-studio, Battles wrote: “Yes, the windows are dusty, but let this serve as evidence of a new record being made.”
Twelve months on, however, and there is currently no confirmed release date or title for the album, or when it is expected to be completed by. The group last released an LP in 2011 with ‘Gloss Drop’. When the new album does arrive, it will be their first since the departure of former member Tyondai Braxton.
