Battlecross have announced that they will enter the studio next month to record their follow-up to their 2011 Metal Blade debut Pursuit of Honor, which topped the Sirius XM Liquid Metal charts, garnered great reviews and earned the band high profile tours, including last summer's Trespass America Festival Tour with Five Finger Death Punch, Killswitch Engage and Trivium. The band will begin recording immediately after the 'Another Year, Another Tour' with In Flames, Demon Hunter and All Shall Perish. Battlecross will look to Mark Lewis and crew at Audiohammer Studios in Florida to record their follow up to their 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."
Eyal Levi will co-produce the record and Armored Saint's Joey Vera, who mastered the band's cover version of Pantera's "Fucking Hostile," will master.
Guitarist Hiran Deraniyagala says the band is "stoked to be working with a prolific studio and producers 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."
In addition, festival organizer Scott Lee, recently announced the addition of Battlecross to the 15th annual New England Metal and Hardcore Festival in Worcester, Massachusetts. This will be the band's first appearance and will join Anthrax, Suicidal Tendencies, Opeth and more.
