Detroit metal band Battlecross will be entering the studio next month to record the follow up to 2011′s Pursuit of Honor. The band will record the album in Audiohammer Studios in Florida with producer Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Trivium, Devil Driver).

Lewis states, “I can’t wait to be a part of Battlecross’ next record. From the moment I heard the band I knew I wanted to be a part of their development. Hearing the new music has only solidified that feeling. Working with our good friends at Metal Blade and bringing great new music to the masses is what it’s all about.

Guitarist Hiran Deraniyagala says the band is “…stoked to be working with a prolific studio and producer at Audiohammer. We’re so focused on making a killer follow up album and we feel that Mark Lewis will help bring our raw, live sound to life.

Battlecross will be embarking on “Another Year, Another Tour” trek alongside In Flames, Demon Hunter, and All Shall Perish. Tour dates are below.

Metal Blade President Michael Faley said, “2013 is destined to be big year for Battlecross starting with a tour with In Flames in February, followed by recording the new album with Mark Lewis in March and April. We have high expectations for the bands sophomore effort which will be released to coincide with a massive tour this summer (stay tuned for details). We are excited by the band’s “non-stop” approach which has landed them on significant tours and support from Jose Mangin at Sirius XM Liquid Metal. Thanks for all the support from the metal community.
