Battle Lines, the much-anticipated new album from Grammy-winning duo Bob Moses, is out now on Domino. The album is receiving early critical acclaim; Dancing Astronaut praises its “smoky rock attitude, soundtrack-worthy ambiance, and subtle dance floor sensibility.” Get the album on all physicals formats here and digitally here.

In celebration of the release, the band return to Ellen to perform single “Back Down” on September 21. The track is currently climbing Alternative radio charts nationwide.

Additionally, the band will perform a special live set for CBC today, live-streaming at 7 p.m. ET—listen/watch here.

Battle Lines follows the band’s acclaimed debut album, Days Gone By, which features their worldwide hit “Tearing Me Up.” The duo recorded the new album in Los Angeles’ Laurel Canyon, after writing and testing out new material on the road. Inspired by their time playing raves and rock clubs all over the globe since the release of Days Gone By, Battle Lines takes a harder look at the world in which they find themselves.

“This record is about the battles and struggles we all live through,” says the duo— Vancouver-bred, Los Angeles-based Tom Howie and Jimmy Vallance— of the new album. “Battles within ourselves, battles with and within our society, battles between each other, with our loved ones, battles between ideologies. It’s also about struggling to identify where those battles lines start and end, and what within us and within our environments cause these struggles, and ultimately cause our suffering. It’s also about the struggle to reconcile with those things, somehow.”

Furthermore, the band will tour North America this fall, with dates kicking off September 21 in Sacramento and further stops including a headline set at San Diego’s CRSSD Festival, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, New York, Austin, Los Angeles and beyond. Tickets are on sale now. Visit for more information.
