Battlecross – interview with Hiran Deraniyagala

12312384266_dc1c3e7e4aAs ever, apologies for my tardiness in getting an interview up on the page! This conversation was recorded at Glasgow’s O2 Academy on February 4th, 2014. Battlecross were opening for the duel headliners of Trivium and Killswitch Engage on their first European tour. Incidentally, you can check out the gig review elsewhere on this site.

Hiran had answered my emailed questions a few months back and kindly took some of the band’s chill-out time to have a natter with me about how they interact with their fans, their jump from club to arena stages and how well their current album, War of Will, is doing.

As ever, feel free to listen online or download the mp3 and treat it as a podcast. If you get the time to transcribe it then a) you have too much time and I’m jealous, and b) please let me know where you post it so that I can link to it. All I ask is credit and a link back here.
