Back from hiatus, Battles have announced two UK dates including a performance at Manchester Academy 2 on 23 October 2015.

The gig is one of only two UK dates scheduled for later this year, following two sell out London shows earlier in 2015.

The news comes as anticipation builds for their as yet untitled third album, although it is expected to be their most future-leaning work yet, forming part of an unplanned triology which began with Mirrored and progressed through Gloss Drop.

The full tour listing:

23 October   –   Manchester, Academy 2
28 October   –   London, Electric Ballroom

Tickets for Battles performing at Manchester Academy 2 on 23 October 2015 go on sale at 9am on Friday 17 July.
