Protest The Hero - Battlecross - tour flyer - 2014 - #7780

Detroit, Michigan-based metallers BATTLECROSS will be joining Canada’s Protest The Hero as direct support on the band’s spring US tour, set to commence March 1st in Buffalo. Tickets went on sale Friday, January 24th.

Guitarist Tony Asta comments:BATTLECROSS is very excited to hit the road with Protest The Hero! They seem like a very successful, humble group of guys who don’t take things too seriously yet are serious about the business — a good role model for all modern bands and we can’t wait to get to know them on the road. Oh yeah and they’re shredders! Being direct support is a huge honor and we won’t let anyone down. This is a very unique tour package and we can’t wait to play to new crowds as well as expose some of our fans to bands they may not have seen yet. See you all in the road this spring!”

It didn’t stop here though, as the band also debuted in Canada’s Soundscan charts coming in at #178 Top 200 Current and #25 Hard Music Charts while also landing on the iTunes charts for release date at #103 on the Top 200, #10 on Rock, and #2 on Metal! This marks the band’s first ever Billboard chart debut! War Of Will also peaked at #3 on the US iTunes metal chart on the day of release.

BATTLECROSS War Of Will – Critical Praise:

“Metallica-approved thrashers…catchy and direct-the secret behind BATTLECROSS songs is that they’re short and not so sweet.” – Revolver Magazine

“The overall result falls somewhere between the sheer aggression of traditional thrash and In Flames’ sense of humanity, with nods to the technical ecstasy of metal’s founding fathers along the way.” – Metal Hammer Magazine (UK)

BATTLECROSS sound like the bastard offspring of Kreator, Children Of Bodom and Dragonforce…metal fans will lap this up like a cat with a bowl of cream.” – Big Cheese Magazine (UK)

(New York, NY) – DARKEST HOUR will be heading over to Europe this Winter of 2011 and they couldn’t be more excited to get back across the pond. “Put on your winter jacket and get ready for endless nights of good times, because we’re headed back to Europe. We’re bringing the Legacy Tour overseas and playing songs from our entire catalog. We fell in love with Europe in 2000 and have enjoyed touring there for an entire decade. Playing from squats to arenas and everywhere in between, we’ve made some of our closest friends and have had some of the best times of our lives. Experiencing all forms of cultures and enjoying the beautiful diversity of the European Continent has always been a joy for the entire band. Since our European bros are true purists, I am sure they will enjoy the set we have cooked up for them.” – Darkest Hour guitarist, Mike Schleibaum
