City Slang: Battlecross to tour (again)


Apparently, Detroit metal-heads Battlecross don’t know when to stop. 2013 sees them embarking on the “Another Year, Another Tour” tour.

In Flames headlines, with Demon Hunter and All Shall Perish also on the bill.

Of most interest to us is the Flint date at the Machine Shop on February 26. However, the tour takes in much of the United States.

2012 was an amazing year for the Metal Blade band, seeing them raise their profile to an internationally loved band. Hopefully, they’ll grow to headliner status in 2013.
