City Slang: Battlecross to open for In Flames

Posted By on Thu, Dec 6, 2012 at 8:34 AM


Detroit’s own metal titans Battlecross will open for Swedish giants In Flames on a tour across the States during February of next year. Also on the bill is Demon Hunter and All Shall Perish.

As of right now, no Michigan show has been announced. The closest is probably in Joliet, IL, on February 8. But Battlecross is headlining the token Lounge in Westland on December 21.

BATTLECROSS guitarist Hiran Deraniyagala comments on the tour: "Wow! So stoked to hit the road with all these great bands - In Flames, Demon Hunter and All Shall Perish. Last year was good to us and looks like next year is even better for Battlecross. This will be a nice break from working on new material and we can't wait to see some new and old faces! Once again very humbled and honored to be a part of a great tour! See you all soon!" Vocalist Kyle "Gumby" Gunther adds: "We hope that fans will come party with us on the Growing Pains tour with Abiotic that starts next week so they can prepare for the heavy metal onslaught that will come their way in February!"
