BATTLECROSS North American Headlining Tour

Wednesday, 15th October 2014

Detroit, Michigan’s BATTLECROSS are heading back out on the road this November and December. The band had previously been scheduled to perform on the recently canceled Machine Head tour, and will now headline the US instead. Joining BATTLECROSS on their winter romp are Wretched and War Of Ages. The tour begins on November 26th in Grand Rapids, MI, and draws to a conclusion in Worcester, MA at the Palladium.

In honor of the US Armed Forces this Veterans Day, BATTLECROSS will make a limited number of tickets to VET TIX so that local members of the military may attend a show in their city at no cost. The band will also be donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of a limited edition tour shirt to a local veteran’s charity, and choose a veteran in each market for a VIP experience. On Veteran’s Day (November 11th) fans can nominate a friend or family member who has served our country and share their story and photo, with a member of the military being chosen to win a guitar and more at the end of the tour. On the same day, the band will also bring back merchandise from their first Metal Blade album Pursuit Of Honor in their official merch store, with a portion of proceeds to benefit the Wounded Warriors Project, a veterans service organization that offers a variety of programs, service and events for wounded veterans of the military actions following the events of September 11th, 2001.

To learn more about honoring a Veteran through the tour or to help underwrite tickets for Veterans, visit this location. Members of the military can inquire about free admission to the tour at

Guitarist Hiran Deraniyagala adds: “We won’t let a canceled tour stop BATTLECROSS from performing for our fans and the Winter Warriors Tour with Wretched and War Of Ages is the perfect way to remind our fans that you keep moving forward when challenges come up in life. Who knows perseverance more than those who bravely serve our country and we are honored to dedicate this tour to them. We are a band that stands for ideals such as loyalty, honor, sacrifice and perseverance through our lyrics and how we conduct ourselves, and hope the tour will be a fitting tribute to every service member who attends. We look forward to raging with our fans who serve or have served in the U.S. Armed Forces and thank them again for their service.”
