When it comes to metal, Battlecross were the kings of Dirt Fest 2014. It started with the fans chanting Battlecross then they started chanting Kaleb which is frontman Gumby's son (coolest thing I saw all day), and then the metal started. It truly was a badass band to watch from start to finish.
Battlecross returns to the Machine Shop this Thursday night (10/10) along with headliners Hatebreed, Shadows Fall and The Acacia Strain. Clio native and Battlecross lead singer, Kyle 'Gumby' Gunther is stoked to be back at the shop this week.
Over the last few months, we've interviewed members of Korn, Papa Roach, Black Veil Brides, RED, Device, Buckcherry and Battlecross and we asked them all the exact same question - "What's the weirdest thing on your tour bus?" Click through to see what they said.
The melodic death/thrash hounds in Michigan’s Battlecross have just released the video for ‘Never Coming Back’ off of their upcoming album ‘War of Will.’ Rather than going the route of the abandoned warehouse that many an extreme band have used as a backdrop, Battlecross stripped everything down and jam out in nothing but white walls and a floor.
Just before they head to Europe for a series of shows and festivals across the pond, Hatebreed have announced a North American tour with Shadows Fall, the Acacia Strain and Battlecross that launches in September. The first batch of dates are below, with more to be announced.
Check out this video of Kyle 'Gumby' Gunther of Battlecross on stage with Pop Evil in New Mexico. The two bands were on the road together as part of the Trespass America Festival. Gumby definitely puts his own spin on 'Last Man Standing'. Awesome!
The Trespass America Festival hits Meadow Brook this Saturday. The tour features Five Finger Death Punch, Killswitch Engage, Trivium, Pop Evil, God Forbid, Emmure and Battlecross! Kyle 'Gumby' Gunther and the Battlecross guys are looking forward to being back in Michigan and we have tickets to blow out!
We know that Jesse Leach gives an intense performance when onstage with Killswitch Engage but behind the scenes he is a master interviewer as his alter-ego ‘Salty Rizz,’ who recently asked tough and very funny questions to his tour mates on the Trespass America Festival.
