Detroit's Battlecross have just announced that they will be hitting the road with Abiotic. The two breakout Metal Blade Records bands will stop in several cities across the midwest. The tour runs from December 8th through December 21th and will be one of your last chances to catch a metal show before everyone heads home for the holidays!
That is the good news. The bad is that the tour has been dubbed The Growing Pains Tour and features some of the most disturbing images known to man. You can check out the tour poster below along with dates and comments from the bands.
Hiran Deraniyagala of BATTLECROSS comments: "We're excited to hit the road with an up and coming band like Abiotic. We're stoked to team up with another new Metal Blade band and I feel both bands will bring in a new audience to the tour. Although this is a limited run, we hope that it gives everyone a taste of what Metal Blade plans for the future of Heavy Metal and we can't wait to rage with the midwest on this tour!"
