Detroit metal-heads Battlecross are currently out on the road as part of the Trespass America Festival with Five Finger Death Punch, Killswitch Engage, God Forbid and Trivium.

"Is this real? I was just watching Killswitch Engage's soundcheck and I kept asking myself, 'Is this is really happening?'" comments vocalist Kyle "Gumby" Gunther. "We've got food on this tour and everything, I might actually be able to gain a pound on this tour because I'm skinny as shit! But in all seriousness, it's an extreme honor to be performing on the same stage with these bands. We never would have imagined playing these types of shows. It's a true honor to be performing with the big dogs."

The tour hits the Rochester Hills Meadowbrook Amphitheater on August 4. The night before, it hits Battle Creek’s Kellogg Arena.
