Tour with Protest the Hero kicks off this Saturday in Buffalo, NY – Band added to Rock am Ring and Rock im Park festivals in Germany!

BATTLECROSS, who just returned home from a very successful tour in Europe (the band’s first) playing with Killswitch Engage, Trivium, and Miss May I, are set to hit the road in the States this weekend on the US tour featuring Protest the Hero, The Safety Fire, Intervals, and Night Verses. The first date of the tour is in Buffalo, NY on Saturday, March 1 and wraps up in Amityville, NY on April 6.

The band comments; “We just had an amazing run with Killswitch Engage and Trivium in Europe and we’re stoked to be with them yet again in the US! We’re going to have a blast with our fans and hopefully make some new ones!”

The touring doesn’t stop here though, as BATTLECROSS will be playing dates with Killswitch Engage and Trivium as well as making a stop at the infamous New England Metal & Hardcore Festival.
