Battlecross Comments On Upcoming Tour Dates With Protest The Hero

As was announced yesterday, Detroit, Michigan-based metallers Battlecross will be joining Canada's Protest The Hero as direct support on the band's spring U.S. tour, set to commence March 1st in Buffalo. Tickets go on sale this Friday, January 24th.

Guitarist Tony Asta comments: "Battlecross is very excited to hit the road with Protest The Hero! They seem like a very successful, humble group of guys who don't take things too seriously yet are serious about the business -- a good role model for all modern bands and we can't wait to get to know them on the road. Oh yeah and they're shredders! Being direct support is a huge honor and we won't let anyone down. This is a very unique tour package and we can't wait to play to new crowds as well as expose some of our fans to bands they may not have seen yet. See you all in the road this spring!"

The latest Battlecross effort, "War Of Will," saw the band on the road as a part of 2013's Rockstar Mayhem Festival and debuted at #134 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, #118 on the Top Current Albums chart, #2 on the Heatseeker chart, #15 on the Current Hard Music chart, #16 on the Hard Music Overall chart, and #32 on the Independent Albums chart.
