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. READ MORE

Detroit, MI heavy metal newcomers Battlecross are making huge waves with their debut album, Pursuit Of Honor, which comes out tomorrow via Metal Blade Records. We were stoked to premiere the exclusive stream of Man Of Stone which kicked my teeth in thanks to it’s mix of brutal thrash and melodic metal. Now the guys have released a video for Push, Pull, Destroy, which was filmed super close to where I live at the historic Willow Run Airport.
For those of you who are into aviation history, this video has a special appearance by the Yankee Lady, one of ten surviving flyable B-17 bombers. This appearance is made all the more powerful and significant because a day before the shoot, the Liberty Belle, another B-17 bomber, crash landed in Chicago, IL. All crew members were able to safely exit the plane before the fire engulfed the entire cabin.
Check out the video after the jump and be prepared as I’m calling it right now: Battlecross are going to become huge.
