Death Angel Tour News: Battlecross To Support

battlecross-death-angel thumb

I think I just wet myself. Here are two bands that I’ve listened to a lot this past year. Death Angel’s The Ultra-Violence completely hijacked my aural life for many weeks and BattlecrossWar of Will has been my go-to album for several weeks now (I’ll be damned if I can get to reviewing it though). So, to get news in my inbox of a Death Angel tour supported by Battlecross is nothing short of amazing.

I know it’s not the original lineup, and many fans irrationally take offense to that, but to see a show on the Death Angel tour is going to be epic. And then to see a new band, Battlecross, taking the metal reins to take thrash metal to new places… well, let’s just say we’ll all be dumbstruck.

See below for the press release and tour dates.
