IKillYa Premieres New Song & Music Video

IKillYa premieres a new song and video entitled "Betray Your Creator", taken from the upcoming new album "War For An Idea", which will be out in stores June 2 via Urban Yeti Records. The band with this track takes a stand against the cultural justification of rape.

Explains vocalist Jason Lekberg: "Pure rage. That’s how we feel about cultural justification of rape, and so that’s the only way we could think to visually represent this song. ‘Betray Your Creator’ was an intense song to create and Matt Brewster and Christoph Knie of Engine Room did an excellent job of capturing that intensity in the video for it.”"

Check out now "Betray Your Creator" below.

Battlecross Announces New Shows, Working On Album

American thrash act Battlecross has confirmed summer tour dates with Canada's Wacken Battle winners Crimson Shadows and New York's IKILLYA.

Guitarist Hiran Deraniyagala says, "We're excited to announce our first headline run in quite a while. It's short but sweet, and this gives us time to write the new record this summer. We are stoked to have our Canadian brothers, Crimson Shadows joining us. We did a short run with those guys earlier this year and they're a great live band and have an awesome record coming out next fall."

After two busy summers on the 2012 Trespass America tour and the 2013 Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, the band looks forward to some time off before South American dates with Killswitch Engage. Battlecross will use the time to write the follow up to "War of Will."

Battlecross is currently on tour in Europe with a series of festival appearances including Download Festival and the Graspop Metal Meeting, plus club shows with Huntress and Lacuna Coil. A full list of dates can be found below.

Guitarist Tony Asta says, "The past year has been very inspiring for the band and our attitude towards the writing process this time around is more confident and driven. I expect our next album to kick you in the ass harder than the last. Album #3 will be a serious contender in 2015 and a defining Battlecross record." More...
