Battlecross Announce ‘Pursuit of Honor’ Tour
Battlecross, a metal band out of Detroit, MI, have announced tour dates for “The Growing Pains Tour.” Joining the band on the road will be Metal Blade Records label-mates Abiotic. The tour kicks off on December 8, in Toledo, OH, and will see the bands in cities throughout the Midwest and South. The final show takes place on December 21 in Flint, MI – the band’s home state – at The Machine Shop. This will be the second appearance Battlecross will make at the venue, as they’ll be performing there with Cannibal Corpse on November 23.
Although the tour is brief, Hiran Deraniyagala (Battlecross guitarist) said he hopes it gives everyone a taste of what Metal Blade plans for the future of heavy metal. The band has been signed to the label since 2011, when they released their most recent album, Pursuit of Honor. Before that they had self-released their previous two albums. Since their formation in 2003, Battlecross has made a name for themselves through extensive touring, and performing with bands like Dying Fetus, GWAR and DevilDriver. They’ve described their sound as “Blue Collar Trash Metal” – but you should probably come find out for yourself this winter.
