European Tour Includes Stops At Primavera Sound, Download, Novarock, Hellfest, Graspop, Roskilde And Dour Festivals

Dead Cross, the SoCal hardcore outfit featuring Dave Lombardo (ex-Slayer, Suicidal Tendencies, Misfits), Mike Patton (Faith No More, Tomahawk), Justin Pearson (The Locust, Retox) and Michael Crain (Retox, Festival of Dead Deer), have released a self-titled, four-track EP via Ipecac Recordings.
 
“I think part of Dead Cross’ motives are to bridge gaps between useless genres and definitions,” explained Pearson. “Part also might be to just burn that shit down. It’s in our collective DNA. Either way, as long as people love it or hate it, we succeed.”
 
News of the EP arrives as the band premieres a video for “My Perfect Prisoner”. The clip was produced by Eric Livingston who also created the cover art for both the band’s full-length debut and this EP.


Dead Cross, which is also the title of the band’s 2017 full-length debut, is available digitally, with a limited 10-inch black/green swirl vinyl version set for a June 29 release. Pre-orders are available now (http://smarturl.it/DCep).
 
Dead Cross tracklist:
 
1.    Skin of a Redneck
2.    My Perfect Prisoner
3.    Shillelagh (Panicker Remix)
4.    Church of the Motherfuckers (Planet B Remix)

The band’s self-titled, full-length debut arrived in August of 2017. The 10-track album was dubbed a “28-minute blitzkrieg” by Revolver, awarded four-stars by Alternative Press, who called it “viciously contagious,” and Black Sabbath’s Bill Ward, in an interview with Rolling Stone, plainly said, “they’re fucking incredible.”
