New single My Machines (feat. Gary Numan) - out August 15/16
‘My Machines’ is a mighty collision of ‘stern, piston drums, guitar notes scattering like frightened crickets’ (NME) and “an album highlight” (Uncut).
As guest vocalist Gary Numan explains: ''Working with Battles was an easy choice for me. They have a unique approach to making music and a clear idea of what they want. They are inventive, adventurous, unpredictable and I'm proud to be involved.''
My Machines (WAP321) tracklisting:
A1. My Machines (Featuring Gary Numan)
