In case you missed the announcement earlier (I started typing this up around 8 hours ago… the joy of having kids!), Battlecross and Miss May I have been announced as the touring support on the UK/Europe Killswitch Engage / Trivium co-headliner.
I saw Miss May I open for Bullet For My Valentine / Halestorm a few months ago (verdict – they’re OK), and Battlecross have been going great guns elsewhere. I had an interview with Hiran at the end of July and he’s a really nice guy. As such, read to the end of the following press release and take him up on the offer. I just have the feeling he – and the rest of the band – are the type of people who aren’t going to just say this for the hell of it. They’ll really be happy to meet new fans and kick back with them!
Battlecross have announced they will join Killswitch Engage, Trivium and Miss May I on a massive run through the UK and Ireland, which kicks off in Dublin on January 29, 2014.
It will be the Detroit outfit’s first outing here and the band are looking forward to it.
“Battlecross is so stoked to hit the UK with Killswitch Engage, Trivium & Miss May I as our first overseas tour ever and thank them for having us on this awesome tour! What an honor it is to share our first UK experience with these bands and we’re ready to thrash with you, our new friends! Thank you all who have been waiting so patiently for Battlecross to come overseas, and we promise that it will be worth the wait!
Expect nothing less than swift hard kick in the arse from our live show and hope you like us enough to have us back very soon. Can’t wait to rage and have a pint or four with our UK fans! Until then, please hit up our website: www.battlecrossmetal.com and send us a message with your email address so we can stay in touch and meet up before, during and after the show AND We’ll write you back! Please keep checking the Metal Blade UK page for updates and giveaways until then!!”
