DEAD CROSS SHARE THE VIDEO FOR “CHURCH OF THE MOTHERFUCKERS”;
EUROPEAN TOURING TO BE EXPECTED IN 2018
Dead Cross debut a visual rebuke of organised religion in the band’s video for “Church of the Motherfuckers,” which you can view below
“We are not capable of understanding aspects of molecular genetics, let alone the universe,” said bass player Justin Pearson of the Michael Panduro directed clip. “I’d rather not fill in the blanks with outlandish oppressive morals, offensive social politics, and patriarchal garbage. In the year 2017 AD some humans still think there is a god.”
The band, which includes Dave Lombardo (ex-Slayer/Suicidal Tendencies), the aforementioned Justin Pearson (Retox/The Locust), Mike Patton (Faith No More/Tomahawk) and Michael Crain (Retox, Festival of Dead Deer), recently announced they’ll head to Europe next summer, already confirming a June 17 performance at Download Paris. More dates will be announced soon.
Dead Cross released their self-titled debut album in early August, which was followed by a five-week trek across North America including a spot at Riot Fest. Dead Cross vinyl and new merchandise is available via Ipecac’s webstore.
“Combative and direct. These adrenaline speedballs of hardcore punk and metal are certain to leave you juiced up and riot ready.” – RECORD COLLECTOR
“One of the year’s most brutal and surreal punk albums.” – TERRORIZER

“The result is an album that sounds as if it was a blast to make and one that’s immensely enjoyable to listen to.” – GUARDIAN
“Dead Cross have become a sum greater than their parts.” – METAL HAMMER
“A deliriously entertaining and cartoonishly brutal sub-half hour onslaught of the tightest metal-leaning hardcore punk you’re likely to hear this year.” – THE 405
“You’ve got the masterminds of Pearson, Patton and Lombardo working together, for unbridled shits and giggles, making music they loved in their youth, with nothing to lose and nothing to prove…If you’re a fan of Slayer, Philm, Melvins, Fantômas, Mr Bungle, Faith No More, Locust, Retox, this is for you and it’s completely gleeful” – QUIETUS
“It has an individuality than allows it stand on its’ own two feet; a brash and aggressive statement that will leave many younger bands quivering in their wake.” – AVE NOCTUM
