It has been a little more than 6 years since New York-based experimental rock band Battles was here in Kuala Lumpur for their first gig in Malaysia.

With the release of their 3rd album “La Di Da Di”, the band will be making their way back to KL this December as part of their Asia tour.



Battles is founded in 2002 by Ian Williams (formerly of Don Caballero and Storm & Stress). It consists of Williams himself as guitarist/keyboardist, Dave Konopka as guitarist/bassist, and John Stanier as drummer.

The 3-piece rock band and their music can’t be defined by a certain adjective. Sure, the rock genre is their driving musical force, but their sounds are usally distorted and computerised beyond recognition. Their composition style is incredibly unique and instruments are used in strange ways as well.

Explaining their sound with a tangent full of adjectives still won’t do their brand of art rock justice.

Having performed in other countries like Tokyo and Berlin, Battles has a notorious reputation as a live act.

Before meeting their Singaporean fans at next year’s Laneway Festival in Singapore, Battles will first meet their Malaysian fans in Kuala Lumpur. Soundscape Records is delighted to announce that the band is coming back to KL for a one-night-only performance since their remarkable debut Malaysian show back in 2009.
