The Battles

Tomorrow's Eager Hands

Hailing from Vancouver, BC, The Battles return after a five-year sojourn with the brilliant Tomorrow’s Eager Hands. The new songs deliver on the promise of their debut (2001’s Lycanthropy); Stephen Wood’s songwriting chops tow the thread between Ray Davies, David Kilgour, Mayo Thompson and Robyn Hitchcock, as the band pings and chugs around power pop, art-rock, and classic rock moves.
