American thrash metal behemoths, BATTLECROSS, will join Machine Head, Children Of Bodom and Epica on a live takeover this Fall! Set to commence on October 4th in Denver, the trek will trample its way through two dozen cities, coming to a close on November 2nd in San Diego.

Comments guitarist Tony Asta: “What an honor to be on this tour! We’re really stoked to reunite with Machine Head and Children Of Bodom, both legendary bands and friends from last Summer’s Mayhem Fest, and to see what Epica is all about. This is a tour with something for every metal head and we can’t wait to be bring it brutal throughout the USA and Canada, banging heads and melting faces from coast-to-coast. See you in the pit!”
In related BATTLECROSSisms, the band will also be heading to Mexico City with Black Label Society, and then on to Brazil for three dates with Killswitch Engage and Memphis May Fire.
Relays guitarist Hiran Deraniyagala: “What a year this has been for us so far. We’ve been to Europe twice and now we’re going to Mexico and South America! We’re so honored to be invited to play with Black Label Society in Mexico City. We have so many loyal rabid fans there and we finally get to play for them! After that we fly to Brazil for three dates with our good friends Killswitch Engage, who we can’t thank enough for always inviting us out for awesome opportunities like this one. Get ready to rage my friends! This will be one for the books!”
