Battlecross Posts "Push Pull Destroy" Video

Metal Injection is currently hosting the premiere of the debut music video from Detroit, MI’s Battlecross for the track "Push Pull Destroy," the first single off of the band's debut album "Pursuit of Honor." Check out the clip in the player below. "Pursuit of Honor" is due out August 2nd, 2011.

The video for Push Pull Destroy was shot by Roy Warner Creative & Videography on location at the Yankee Air Museum, located on the grounds of the historic Willow Run Airport. It was at Willow Run where Henry Ford mobilized his manufacturing base to contribute to the war efforts by mass producing the B-24 Liberators that provided American Air Power to win WWII for the Allies. The band also commented on the clip:

"The video was shot in front of a number of military aircraft, including a B-52 Stratofortress and a C7 Caribou with a special appearance by the B-17 Yankee Lady, one of the only ten surviving flyable B-17s in the world. The Yankee Air Museum is the home to the Yankee Lady, long considered to be the most beautifully restored of all of the remaining flyable planes. This picture is of particular significance because only a day prior to the video shoot, the B-17 Liberty Belle crash landed outside of Chicago, IL and was destroyed. The crew exited safely before the plane was engulfed by flames---another testament to her strength and service to protect its crew.

"Portions of the video were shot at the former Packard Automobile Plant in Detroit, MI. Long abandoned and in ruins, the shoot location is reminiscent of the destruction in Germany by the mighty eighth air force of WWII."

Battlecross Posts New Album Artwork

Detroit Michigan's Battlecross announced its signing with Metal Blade Records in May. The band has now released the artwork and track listing for the full-length debut "Pursuit of Honor," which can be viewed below. "Pursuit of Honor" is due out on August 2nd in North America.

The band comments on album artwork that was created by Josh Schroeder: "The album artwork for Pursuit of Honor was created by the same mastermind who co-produced, mixed, and mastered this album, Josh Schroeder. He made a few merch designs for us in the past and we knew we wanted him to create the album art as well, first of all to keep everything cohesive and relevant, also because we love his unique style and vision, and lastly because he knows us so well. We feel the artwork depicts a strong sense of power and aggression with a leader among warriors. The Pursuit of Honor refers to the ongoing battle within us and the struggle to overcome, to crush all obstacles, and prevail at all costs."

Also available today is the band's first single Push Pull Destroy. Vocalist Gumby commented on the single: "When I sing this song I think about how hard it was to even get to this point and the hard road still to come. It's about overcoming all and coming out on the other side stronger. Push Pull Destroy is in your face with a blend of intense rage and epic power from the first scream to the ending bass line."
