"...rhythmically maddening." - THE NEW YORK TIMES

"Drummer John Stanier and multi-instrumentalist Ian Williams lock together to form the inhumanly tight core of Juice B Crypts, slipping in and out of beats and loops with phenomenal precision." - AV CLUB

"Working together, they create a fusion of opposites-thudding, propulsive tracks of layered complexity where computers sound human and people sound like machines." - THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

New York City art-rock icons Battles have released their fourth LP Juice B Crypts available today via Warp Records. While they've always been from New York, Juice B Crypts is the first album Battles have written and recorded living there. Influenced by its rhythms, it joins the dots of their lived and unlived experiences there, mapping them out on the LP artwork. Starting its life as a venerated weight of information and data, Juice B Crypts is the refined and repeated ingestion of human inflections into machine learning. As Battles explore new territory for the first time as a duo, their approach to composition and live performance intends to dismantle the traditional band format. On this album they've become featherweight ghosts within the machine, changing direction with ease they leave the listener at the mercy of their instincts. Juice B Crypts is Battles untethered
