Battles have just announced the release of their latest Gloss Drop single, “My Machines” (Feat. Gary Numan) due out August 15th via Warp Records.

The single will be available on silver 12″ vinyl, and features a brand new track titled “A.M. Gestalt” as the b-side, plus the instrumental version of “My Machines.”

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.”

The 12″ is available for pre-order now, and will include MP3 downloads.

Starting in October, Battles will head out for a month-long US run, making a stop at the Vic in Chicago on October 7th. Tickets are still available. You can also enter to win tix from Jam Productions.
