Battles for Falls Festival?

Two months ago FL reported that electro-pop band Metronomy are a good chance to play Falls Festival this December, and now it seems the rumour mill is well and truly spinning with Battles indicating they too may be here over the New Year’s period.

Speaking with triple j’s Zan Rowe about the band’s new album Gloss Drop this week, guitarist Ian Williams said: “I think we’re talking about coming down there the end of this year so we’re talking December, January time. Maybe New Years Eve territory. So, we’ll be there.” You can listen to the interview in full right here.

The experimental lo-fi pop band tUnE yArDs is also strongly rumoured to be playing Falls this year following a very enthusiastic comment about the band by the festival on Twitter in May.
