BATTLECROSS: Unveils New Music Video for ‘Kaleb’ Today


Detroit, MI’s BATTLECROSS and have just released a brand new, live music video for the track ‘Kaleb’, cut from the band’s latest Metal Blade Records release, Pursuit of Honor. Fans can check out the video now at this location. The video happens to be directed and edited by Ryan Glisan of death metal band and label-mate Allegaeon. The live footage in the video was filmed at the July 13th kick off date of the TRESPASS AMERICA festival in Broomfield, CO.

“Kaleb is the one song on the album that I’m the most proud of because I wrote it about my son,” states 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!”


The TRESPASS AMERICA festival is still at large, also featuring headliners Five Finger Death Punch, with support from Killswitch Engage, Trivium, Emmure, Pop Evil, and God Forbid. Amidst the festival routing, BATTLECROSS will headline the Apocalypse stage at 9:45pm on Saturday, August 11th at Heavy MTL in Montreal, QC. You can learn more about Heavy MTL here:
