Following the band's originally scheduled support slot on the recently cancelled Machine Head tour, Michigan's Battlecross will be heading back out on the road next month for more than two dozen headlining dates through North America.
Dubbed the "Winter Warriors" tour, the trek will kick off on November 26th in Grand Rapids, Michigan and conclude on December 30th in Worcester, Massachusetts. Support will come from Wretched and War Of Ages.
In honor of the U.S. Armed Forces, this Veterans Day Battlecross will make a limited number of tickets available to VET TIX so that local members of the military may attend a show in their city at no cost. The band will also be donating a portion of the funds generated from sales of a limited edition tour shirt to a local veteran's charity, and choose a veteran in each market for a VIP experience.
On Veteran's Day (November 11th) fans can nominate a friend or family member who has served their country and share their story and photo, with a member of the military being chosen to win a guitar and more at the end of the tour.
On the same day, the band will also bring back merchandise from their first Metal Blade album, "Pursuit Of Honor," in their official merch store, with a portion of the proceeds being set aside to benefit the Wounded Warriors Project, a veterans service organization that offers a variety of programs, services and events to wounded veterans of the military following the events of September 11th, 2001.
Battlecross just checked in with the following update about new tour dates running through the end of the year:

"As some of you may have heard, my mother was in a tragic accident and is in very serious condition in the ICU in Boston. This unfortunately means I will have to miss out on at least a portion of our future shows. I must be by mom and family's side during these difficult times...Our pal Marshall from Wretched will be filling in on my duties.
"He is a good friend of ours and a great drummer! I know he will do an awesome job in my absence! I hope everyone understands and keeps my mom in their positive thoughts and prayers. It helps in a big way to have the support! I will return as soon as I can to my bros in Havok and wish them all the best on this next run!"
