Biography

Following a string of EPs, the band released their debut album on the Warp Records label in February 2006, which was titled EP C / B EP. It is a compilation of their increasingly hard-to-find early releases, EP C, B EP and the single "Tras".

Their first full-length album Mirrored, recorded by Keith Souza at Machines with Magnets, was released on May 14, 2007. The album received positive reviews and appeared on several top album lists for 2007.

The first single from the album, "Atlas", was released on February 21, 2007 as streaming audio, and the accompanying streaming video was released on February 28, 2007. It was voted "Best Single of the Week" by NME magazine, and received a glowing review in the British Clash Magazine, as well as ranking at number one in the second Dandelion Radio Festive Fifty. The song was performed by the band on BBC television's Later With Jools Holland in November 2007. The song also went on to be featured in the Media Molecule developed video game Little Big Planet, available for the Playstation 3.

Battles released a streaming video for the track "Tonto", in which they collaborated with celebrated lights artists UVA (United Visual Artists). The accompanying single was released in late 2007.

Battles scored their first UK cover feature in April 2007, talking to The Skinny magazine about the making of Mirrored.
