battles announces departure of dave konopka

In a message just posted across their social media, has confirmed a change in a sad, handwritten note. Their guitarist/bassist Konopka has decided to leave “for personal reasons.” Dude is a beast and is going to be missed.

Hey everyone, as some of you maybe have heard, has changed. A little over a year ago, decided to leave for personal reasons.

Anyone that listens to our knows that each stage of our evolution is pretty different. We’ve never been a band looking to repeat a formula and new situations present chances to do new things.

We appreciate and love everyone that was a part of Battles and are really excited about what’s next. More to come…

Love,
Ian and John

Thankful that the band will have something else coming soon. And they have some dates still booked on the calendar, so we’ll be eagerly waiting to see what they bring to the stage that day.
