“Kaleb”, the new video from Detroit, Michigan’s BATTLECROSS, can be seen below. The song comes off the band’s debut album, “Pursuit Of Honor”, which came out in August 2011 via Metal Blade Records. The clip was directed and edited by Ryan Glisan of the death metal band ALLEGAEON. The live footage in the video was filmed at the July 13 kick-off date of the Trespass America festival in Broomfield, Colorado.
“‘Kaleb’ is the one song on the album that I’m the most proud of because I wrote it about my son,” states BATTLECROSS vocalist Kyle “Gumby” Gunther. “To have this be the track that Ryan used is really special to me, because seeing the intensity of our first arena show with such a hard-hitting song really gives the world a good idea of how much I love my boy. As a band, we’ll never forget that show. We were nervous as all hell!”
BATTLECROSS has received killer reviews across the Internet and in print publications throughout North America and overseas and was named “Band Of The Month” in Metal Hammer Norway and Metal Hammer Spain, so it should be no surprise that this blue collar, hard-work ethic that comes from the band’s five musicians — Kyle “Gumby” Gunther (vocals), Tony Asta (guitar), Hiran Deraniyagala (guitar), Mike Kreger (drums), Don Slater (bass) — translates into a potent force on record as well as on stage.
In other news, BATTLECROSS‘s first single, “Push Pull Destroy”, has just reached its one millionth view on YouTube. The single was featured on SiriusXM Liquid Metal‘s Devil’s Dozen list for the last 40 weeks and is also featured on the free Trespass America festival sampler, available on Amazon.com.
