BATTLECROSS HEADLINE “WINTER WARRIORS TOUR” w/ WRETCHED & WAR OF AGES

October 15, 2014

BX Instagram ALL DATES 02- October 15th, 2014 –
Detroit, Michigan’s Battlecross are heading back out on the road this November and December. The band had previously been scheduled to perform on the recently cancelled Machine Head tour, and will now headline the US instead! Joining Battlecross on their winter romp are Wretched and War of Ages. The tour begins on November 26 in Grand Rapids, MI, and draws to a conclusion in Worcester, MA at the Palladium.
In honor of the US Armed Forces this Veterans Day, Battlecross will make a limited number of tickets to VET TIX so that local members of the military may attend a show in their city at no cost. The band will also be donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of a limited edition tour shirt to a local veteran’s charity, and chose a Veteran in each market for a VIP experience. On Veteran’s Day (November 11th) fans can nominate a friend or family member who has served our country and share their story and photo, with a member of the military being chosen to win a Guitar and more at the end of the tour. On the same day, the band will also bring back merchandise from their first Metal Blade album ‘Pursuit of Honor‘ in their official merch store, with a portion of proceeds to benefit the Wounded Warriors Project, a veterans service organization that offers a variety of programs, service and events for wounded veterans of the military actions following the events of September 11, 2001.
To learn more about honoring a Veteran through the tour or to help underwrite tickets for Veterans, click here. Members of the military can inquire about free admission to the tour at www.vettix.org.
Guitarist Hiran Deraniyagala adds: “We won’t let a cancelled tour stop Battlecross from performing for our fans and the Winter Warriors Tour with Wretched and War of Ages is the perfect way to remind our fans that you keep moving forward when challenges come up in life. Who knows perseverance more than those who bravely serve our country and we are honored to dedicate this tour to them. We are a band that stands for ideals such as loyalty, honor, sacrifice and perseverance through our lyrics and how we conduct ourselves, and hope the tour will be a fitting tribute to every service member who attends. We look forward to raging with our fans who serve or have served in the U.S. Armed Forces and thank them again for their service.“

- June 18th, 2014 –

American thrash metallers BATTLECROSS have confirmed summer tour dates with Canada’s Wacken Battle winners Crimson Shadows and New York’s IKILLYA.

Guitarist Hiran Deraniyagala says, “We’re excited to announce our first headline run in quite a while. It’s short but sweet, and this gives us time to write the new record this summer. We are stoked to have our Canadian brothers, Crimson Shadows joining us. We did a short run with those guys earlier this year and they’re a great live band and have an awesome record coming out next fall.

After two busy summers on the 2012 Trespass America tour with Five Finger Death Punch, Killswitch Engage and Trivium, the 2013 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival and Metallica’s Orion Festival, the band looks forward to some time off before their South American dates with Killswitch Engage. They will use the time to write the follow up to ‘War of Will‘ on Metal Blade Records, which debuted at #134 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, #118 on the top current albums chart, and #2 on the Heatseeker chart. It also debuted in Canada’s Soundscan charts at #178 Top 200 Current and #25 Hard Music Charts while also landing on the iTunes charts for release date at #103 Top 200, #10 on Rock, and #2 on Metal!

BATTLECROSS are currently on tour with their energetic live show in Europe with a series of festival appearances including Download Festival and the Graspop Metal Meeting, plus club shows with Huntress and Lacuna Coil. BATTLECROSS will wrap up their headline tour with an appearance at Michigan’s Dirt Fest, followed by additional tour dates supporting Killswitch Engage. The entire confirmed listing of dates can be seen below.

Guitarist Tony Asta says, “The past year has been very inspiring for the band and our attitude towards the writing process this time around is more confident and driven. I expect our next album to kick you in the ass harder than the last. Album #3 will be a serious contender in 2015 and a defining Battlecross record.

BATTLECROSS Release Slayer Cover

May 23, 2014

- May 23rd, 2014 –

Detroit, MI’s Battlecross just released a new cover of Slayer’s “War Ensemble!” SiriusXM Liquid Metal’s Jose Mangin will debut the track live today at 5:00 pm EST. It will then repeat every three hours throughout the weekend.

Guitarist Hiran Deraniyagala says, “Slayer is obviously one of our biggest influences. Slayer taught me personally to not give a f#@k and throw in attitude in your riffs. War Ensemble is one of my favorite Slayer songs because it embodies the aggression and attitude of Slayer but also is more dynamic than a traditional Slayer song that is all speed. Jeff Hanneman was an underrated player and it’s shame his greatness was only recognized after he passed. In honor of Jeff we wanted to cover “War Ensemble” and throw in a bit of our own twist and speed to the song. Slayer!!!!!!”

The track will be streaming via Metal Hammer UK and Metal Hammer Germany beginning May 27 and will later be made available to fans via iTunes.

Battlecross‘ cover of “War Ensemble” was recorded, mixed and mastered by Matt Dalton at 37 Studios in Rochester Hills, Michigan.

Battlecross recently kicked off a North American tour with Killswitch Engage and Trivium. The tour will wrap up at the end of May, and then the band will regroup and venture to Europe in June for a series of festival appearances, as well as club shows with Huntress!
