Metal Blade Records thrashers Battlecross have confirmed an opening slot touring alongside Swedish melodic death metal band In Flames. Other openers will include All Shall Perish and Demon Hunter. Tour dates for the first leg can be seen below while a second leg of dates will be announced in the next few weeks.
Guitarist Hiran Deraniyagala comments: “Wow! So stoked to hit the road with all these great bands – In Flames, Demon Hunter and All Shall Perish. Last year was good to us and looks like next year is even better for Battlecross. This will be a nice break from working on new material and we can’t wait to see some new and old faces! Once again very humbled and honored to be a part of a great tour! See you all soon!”
Vocalist Kyle “Gumby” Gunther adds: “We hope that fans will come party with us on the Growing Pains tour with Abiotic that starts next week so they can prepare for the heavy metal onslaught that will come their way in February!”
