Battlecross Are Touring & Supporting Veterans
Thu, 20 Nov 2014 11:54:14
Support our vets! Metal warriors Battlecross are doing just that.
Following their originally scheduled support slot on the recently cancelled Machine Head tour, Detroit, Michigan's Battlecross will be heading back out on the road next month for more than two dozen headlining dates through North America.
Dubbed the Winter Warriors tour, support will be provided by Wretched and War of Ages.
In honor of the US Armed Forces, this Veterans Day Battlecross will make a limited number of tickets available to VET TIX so that local members of the military may attend a show in their city at no cost.
That's FUCKING awesome. Nice work, metal dudes.
The band will also be donating a portion of the funds generated from sales of a limited edition tour shirt to a local veteran's charity, and choose a veteran in each market for a VIP experience.
To learn more about honoring a veteran through the tour or to help underwrite tickets for veterans, go here.
Members of the military can inquire about free admission to the tour here.
Guitarist Hiran Deraniyagala said, "We won't let a cancelled 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 US Armed Forces and thank them again for their service."
Amen to that.
