leave a comment »

Battles, a mostly instrumental-experimental-math rock band from NYC, just released their sophomore album Gloss Drop last week via Warp Records. It’s their first release without former front man, Tyondai Braxton, who left the band last summer. The two videos below filmed the amazingly talented people at La Blogotheque feature the trio playing songs off the new record in a beautiful, old hotel in Paris.

The band also just extended their already lengthy tour across North America and Europe. One of the new additions to the tour is a date at the TLA in Philly on Monday, October 31st aka Halloween. Tickets for the show are on sale and can be found HERE.

All tour dates and videos below…

I had no idea I was even going to this show until a few hours before it started. Our good friends over at Phrequency.com tweeted to the world, “We’re giving away a pair of tickets to of Montreal at The TLA tonight! First person to reply with the hashtag #freestuffphrequency wins!” so I gave it a try and won. It was the second time in a month that I had won tickets to a show via Twitter.

Since I wasn’t there to cover the show, I decided to enjoy myself and the music. I did manage to take a few photos though. Overall it was a fun-filled energetic night with of Montreal who put on their signature, whacky/awesome live show. No other act out there today can top their stage performances. Did you go? Let us know what you thought.
