- April 15th, 2014 –

American Thrash Titans BATTLECROSS have confirmed their first-ever South American tour dates with Killswitch Engage and Memphis May Fire in August. The band will play three dates in Brazil.

Guitarist Tony Asta of BATTLECROSS says: “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!”

BATTLECROSS took their energetic live show for the first time ever to Europe earlier this year in support of Killswitch Engage and Trivium in mainland Europe and the United Kingdom. BATTLECROSS will return to Europe in June for a series of festival dates, including Download Festival, Graspop and co-headlining dates with Huntress.
