Battlecross Comments On "Occupation Domination" Tour Dates With Origin

As was previously announced, Detroit thrashers Battlecross will be hitting the road as a part of the Occupation Domination 2012 tour featuring heavyweights Origin, Cattle Decapitation, Decrepit Birth, Aborted, and Rings of Saturn.

The Occupation Domination 2012 Tour kicks off at Sonar in Baltimore, MD on April 20 and wraps up May 18 in Lawrence, KS at the Granada Theater. The Occupation Domination 2012 tour marks Battlecross' first major US tour and will see the band promoting the devastating Metal Blade debut, "Pursuit of Honor," which just dropped August 02, 2011. The band commented:

"Battlecross is stoked to share the stage with bands as respected as Origin, Cattle Decapitation, Decrepit Birth, Aborted, and fellow newcomers Rings of Saturn. We're thankful to have the support of Liquid Metal and fan support on YouTube. We anticipate that a lot of kids are going to come out to support the tour and we're going to thank each and every one of them! We can't wait to inject some Detroit thrash into this extremely heavy & talented lineup and make some new friends along the way. See you on the road!"

In other news, on Friday February 17 Battlecross landed in the #1 position of Sirius XM's the Devil's Dozen Countdown with the single "Push Pull Destroy." Here's what metalhead and Sirius XM-Liquid Metal DJ and Headbanger's Ball host Jose Mangin had to say about Battlecross's recent feat:

"They've been stirring up our fan base since day one, clawing their way to the top of the Devil's Dozen Countdown, inciting mobile mosh pits every time they're on Liquid Metal! That's the power of straight to your core American made Metal!"

Check out the video for "Push Pull Destroy" here - 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.
