BATTLECROSS: Sirius XM Liquid Metal to Premiere New Studio Cover of “Hostile”, Scheduled to Perform at the Metal Blade Records 30th Anniversary Label Showcase

| 30 August 2012 | Reply

Yesterday, Detroit, MI’s BATTLECROSS finished their run with the TRESPASS AMERICA festival, also featuring Five Finger Death Punch with support from Killswitch Engage, Trivium, Emmure, Pop Evil, and God Forbid. Helping to cap such a defining summer in the band’s already accelerating career, Sirius XM Liquid Metal will premiere the band’s studio cover of the track “Hostile” (originally performed by Pantera) on Friday, August 31st. Afterward, the track will be available for purchase on iTunes. The band performed “Hostile” live at several stops on the TRESPASS AMERICA festival (last night’s performance of the song included a guest appearance by Five Finger Death Punch’s Chris Kael).

“TRESPASS AMERICA has been a blast. We can’t believe it’s all over. It’s been a wake-up call, a learning experience, and a privilege to be part of this kick ass festival,” states guitarist Tony Asta. “We’ve made so many new friends along the way and it’s very humbling to see so much support from all our fans. Thank you all for making this dream a reality.”

Tony continues, “We are very excited to release our cover of “Hostile” on Sirius XM with Pantera being heavily influential to the band. Rest in peace, Dime. Now crank it to eleven!”

The band will be taking part in the Metal Blade Records 30th Anniversary Label Showcase, sponsored by Scion A/V Club! The showcase takes place on Saturday, September 15th at The Glasshouse in Pomona, CA. The show is free with RSVP (strictly required) and space is limited.
