American thrash metallers BATTLECROSS have confirmed a first batch of three prestigious European festival appearances for the summer of 2014.
13 – Donington Park, UK – Download Festival
15 – Nickelsdorf, Austria – Nova Rock
27 – Dessel, Belgium – Graspop
Comments Battlecross: "We're extremely excited to be a part of these festivals! It's a dream come true for us to introduce ourselves to our new friends in Europe on such a grand scale. The European festivals are always spoken of so highly in the states, especially for metal, so we're honored and thankful that we get to be a part of them so early in our careers. Hopefully this will open doors for us to play more festivals and expose our music to larger crowds across the continent and beyond. We hope that everyone will come check us out at Nova Rock, Graspop and other festivals that will be announcing soon. Thank you!"
But before that Battlecross will finally be taking their live show to Europe in 2014 with TRIVIUM. The Detroit, MI-based metal act will begin their conquest of Europe on January 29th in Dublin, Ireland. After leaving the UK, where KILLSWITCH ENGAGE will be headlining, the tour will continue throughout the rest of the European continent with shows in Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands, before wrapping up the tour in Milan, Italy. This tour will be the inaugural European tour for Battlecross, who have already proven to be one of the most promising newcomers in the North American metal scene throughout the last four years.
