Local power metal titans Battlecross, signed to Metal Blade Records, are going into the studio next month to record the follow-up to the 2011 debut Pursuit of Honor.
According to a press release, “Battlecross will look to Mark Lewis and crew at Audiohammer Studios in Florida to record their follow up to 2011/2012's breakout album, scheduled for release in summer 2013. Lewis, responsible for the production and/or engineering for bands such as The Black Dahlia Murder, Trivium, Devil Driver, and Deicide said, "I can't wait to be a part of Battlecross' next record. From the moment I heard the band I knew I wanted to be a part of their development. Hearing the new music has only solidified that feeling. Working with our good friends at Metal Blade and bringing great new music to the masses is what it's all about."”
Guitarist Hiran Deraniyagala says the band is "stoked to be working with a prolific studio and producer at Audiohammer. We're so focused on making a killer follow up album and we feel that Mark Lewis will help bring our raw, live sound to life."
Battlecross plays the Machine Shop in Flint on February 26.
