Cool Tour for the Hot Summer: Battlecross with Crimson Shadows and IKILLYA



This is the first summer in two years that Battlecross aren’t part of a massive summer package tour (they were part of Trespass in ’12, Mayhem in ’13), but that doesn’t mean they’re depriving fans of the chance to see ’em live this season: the band will headline a North American tour starting in late July, with support coming from Crimson Shadows and perennial MetalSucks faves, IKILLYA. I assume Battlecross’ set is gonna be considerably longer than the ones they played when they were on those other tours, and the venues they’re hitting are certainly more intimate. So this is actually way betterer than if they were back on one of those traveling mini-fests.

Bonus: when the tour concludes, the band will have a couple of weeks off before heading to South America with Killswitch Engage, and they plan to use that time to start writing their next album, which will be released sometime next year on Metal Blade. So add that to your list of “Things to Look Forward to in 2015.”

Get  tour dates below… and make sure you get to the venue early so you don’t miss IKILLYA, okay? I promise you will be way into them if you’re a Battlecross fan.
