Mirrored and Gloss Drop will also be repressed.

Warp has announced a comprehensive campaign of Battles reissues, with all of the band’s early releases available on vinyl again.

As well as represses of Mirrored and Gloss Drop in the original deluxe packaging, the classic EP C/B EP will be available on vinyl for the first time.

EP C/B EP was originally released on CD by Warp in 2006 when Battles could still be loosely classified as a math rock band, and compiled the music from EP C on Monitor Records, the B EP on Dim Mak, and the Tras single on Cold Sweat Records.

While Tras and B EP saw a vinyl release, none of EP C has been previously available on wax. Warp’s reissue features new gatefold artwork by Battles guitarist Dave Konopka, and comes as a double LP.

The reissues all arrive on April 1 and join last year’s La Di Da Di. Battles will also be touring in spring – dates for that below.
