BATTLECROSS Kicks Off the TRESPASS AMERICA FESTIVAL with FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, and More!




Detroit, MI’s self-touted “blue collar thrashers” BATTLECROSS are hitting the road today with the TRESPASS AMERICA festival! The festival kicks off tonight in Broomfield, CO at the 1st Bank Center and features headliners Five Finger Death Punch, as well as the reunited original line-up of Killswitch Engage. The TRESPASS AMERICA Festival also features Trivium, Emmure, Pop Evil, and God Forbid.

“Is this real? I was just watching Killswitch Engage’s soundcheck and I kept asking myself, ‘Is this is really happening?’” comments vocalist Kyle "Gumby" Gunther. “We’ve got food on this tour and everything, I might actually be able to gain a pound on this tour because I’m skinny as shit! But in all seriousness, it’s an extreme honor to be performing on the same stage with these bands. We never would have imagined playing these types of shows. It’s a true honor to be performing with the big dogs.”
