Battlecross has just announced three Brazilian dates with Killswitch Engage, and if I lived in the land where bubble butts were invented, I’d definitely go check out a show. This will be Battlecross’ first time performing in South America — Residents beware: brutality on the way!
I love me some Battlecross and their modern take on old-school thrash. Add some KSE, and it’ll be a night to remember. Also joining these two powerful forces is Memphis May Fire.
See the Brazil dates below, plus a slew of other tour dates.
Battlecross guitarist, Tony Asta, states:
Battlecross is primed and ready to explore the unknown and take on South America with the mighty Killswitch Engage and Memphis May Fire. This will be our first time ever performing in this part of the world where a strong legacy of thrash metal has created a culture of the most devoted metal heads in the planet. We’ve been keeping in touch with fans through the Battlecross Brasil facebook page and we can’t wait to show them what we’ve got!
This won’t be the first time Battlecross has toured with KSE. Earlier this year they toured Europe with KSE and Trivium. If your European ass missed them then, you can check them out this June, when Battlecross returns for a string of festival dates, including Download, Graspop, and a co-headlining tour with Huntress.
Don’t worry, American friends, Battlecross has dates lined up for you in May, also with KSE and Trivium.
Killswitch Engage and Trivium in May.
