Battlecross Announces "The Growing Pains" Tour With Abiotic

Detroit, MI's Battlecross will embark on a short headlining tour with label mates Abiotic this December. Two of this year's breakout Metal Blade bands will embark on The Growing Pains Tour, stopping at various cities throughout the Midwest/southern US, including Des Moines, IA, Richmond, VA, Peoria, IL, and more.

The tour runs from December 8th through December 21st and will be one of your last chances to catch a metal show before everyone heads home for the holidays. The confirmed dates are listed below. Abiotic will be performing in support of new album "Symbiosis" (reviewed here).

Hiran Deraniyagala of Battlecross comments: "We're excited to hit the road with an up and coming band like Abiotic. We're stoked to team up with another new Metal Blade band and I feel both bands will bring in a new audience to the tour. Although this is a limited run, we hope that it gives everyone a taste of what Metal Blade plans for the future of Heavy Metal and we can't wait to rage with the midwest on this tour!"
