Detroit, MI’s self-touted “blue collar Thrashers” BATTLECROSS are gearing up to lay waste to the states on this summer’s TRESPASS AMERICA festival. The festival kicks off in one month on July 13, 2012 in Broomfield, CO and features 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. The anticipation is building; get your tickets now before they are sold out (link below).
Due to the insane buzz around BATTLECROSS and their unique take on modern Thrash Metal, the band has been added to this year’s HEAVY MTL festival in Montreal, QC. To learn more about the festival and to read about this year’s line-up, please visit HeavyMtl.com.
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/guitar, Hiran Deraniyagala/guitar, 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.
