BATTLECROSS announce “Rise to Power” and launch brand new song!

batlecross

Motor City thrashers BATTLECROSS have just returned home from a successful trip to Bogota, CO, and nearly immediately upon returning, have launched a brand new song from their forthcoming album, “Rise to Power“! The new song, “Not Your Slave“, is streaming at metalblade.com/battlecross, where pre-order is also possible. “Rise to Power” will be released worldwide on Metal Blade Records on August 21st, 2015.

Rise to Power” was produced by Mark Lewis and engineered by Jason Suecof at Audiohammer Studios. Cover art was completed by Hungarian artist Péter Sallai (Sabaton, Sacred Steel).

Guitarist Tony Asta offers the following comment on the new single, “Not Your Slave“: “We’re really happy with the crushing feel of this song. Somehow through the writing process, maybe even on accident, a more groovy feel was created. We won’t write the same record twice and I think this is our strongest and more dynamic album yet.

The upcoming US tour also puts an end to the band’s search for a permanent drummer, with bay area’s Alex Bent now firmly in place behind the kit. After performing with the band on two 2014 headliners and in South America, Alex officially joined and tracked drums for the new album. He can be seen here performing “Ghost Alive” last winter on the Winter Warriors Tour
