American thrash titans, BATTLECROSS, are pleased to confirm three tour dates this August in Brazil with Killswitch Engage and Memphis May Fire. This will mark the band’s first-ever shows in South America.
Comments guitarist Tony Asta: “BATTLECROSS is primed and ready to explore the unknown and take on South America with the mighty Killswitch Engage and Memphis May Fire! This will be our first time ever performing in this part of the world where a strong legacy of thrash metal has created a culture of the most devoted metal heads in the planet. We’ve been keeping in touch with fans through the BATTLECROSSBrazil Facebook page and we can’t wait to show them what we’ve got!”
BATTLECROSS took their energetic live show for the first time ever to Europe earlier this year supporting Killswitch Engage and Trivium. The band will return to Europe in June for a series of festival dates, including Download, Graspop and co-headlining dates with Huntress. BATTLECROSS will also play a series of US shows (also with Killswitch Engage and Trivium) next month.
