BATTLECROSS Releases "Occupation Domination" Tour Update & "Trespass America Festival" Preview Video!

Detroit, Michigan thrashers BATTLECROSS are currently making waves across the United States as the next big thing in Heavy Metal while touring with the "Occupation Domination" tour.  BATTLECROSS will continue to slay the states with Origin, Cattle Decapitation, Decrepit Birth, Aborted, and Rings of Saturn through the tour’s close in Lawrence, KS on May 18. Earlier this week in California, the band filmed a video tour update and TRESPASS AMERICA Festival preview message, watch it below!

The TRESPASS AMERICA festival is a newly minted music festival set on revitalizing the Metal scene with some of the most current and credible bands in hard Rock/Metal. Co-produced with Metal Hammer, the biggest Metal magazine in the U.K., the tour kicks off July 13 at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, CO, and will cover 31 cities in two months between July and August across the United States. BATTLECROSS will be joined by headliners Five Finger Death Punch, as well as the reunited original line-up of Killswitch Engage. The TRESPASS AMERICA Festival also features Trivium, Emmure, Pop Evil, and God Forbid. Tickets are on sale now; see the link below.
BATTLECROSS has come a long way since their recent signing with Metal Blade Records and their release of their debut 'Pursuit of Honor' in August 2011. Since its release, the single "Push Pull Destroy" was the #1 Most Requested Metal Track for five weeks (Sirius XM Liquid Metal Devil's Dozen), remains a stable on the Liquid Metal channel, and the track's video has racked up over 700,000 YouTube views in the last five months. BATTLECROSS has received killer reviews across the internet and in print publications throughout North America and overseas and was named “Band of the Month” in Metal Hammer Norway and Metal Hammer Spain, so it should be no surprise that this blue collar, hard-work ethic that comes from the band's five musicians - Kyle "Gumby" Gunther (vocals), Tony Asta & Hiran Deraniyagala (guitars), Mike Kreger (drums), Don Slater (bass) - translates into a potent force on record as well as on stage. BATTLECROSS is also confirmed to sail the seas with the first annual MAYHEM FESTIVAL Cruise this December 7-10.
