Battles have announced their new album. La Di Da Di is the band’s third full-length and their first since 2011’s Gloss Drop. It’s due out September 18 via their longtime label Warp. Below is the album’s tracklist and cover art, followed by a bunch of tour dates they announced earlier this week.

No music from the album has been shared as of yet, so we’re just have to rely on what the official press release has to say about the album. The press release describes La Di Da Di as such: “Dave Konopka, Ian Williams, and John Stanier have turned the tables on themselves this time, confronted their own ideas of what Battles is - and here on their third album, have willed an answer to that question into existence. As the name might imply, La Di Da Di is a mushrooming monolith of repetition. Here is an organic techno thrum of nearly infinite loops that refuse to remain consistent. The rhythmic genus of Battles is here as ever; full frontal, heightened and unforgiving - the gauntlet through which melody and harmony must pass, assailed at every turn.”
