Dead Cross Drop Spazzy New Song "My Perfect Prisoner," Gory Video, Surprise EP

Mike Patton-fronted hardcore outfit shocks with NSFW clip and previously unannounced four-track record

As you might expect from a hardcore outfit featuring Mike Patton (Faith No More, Tomahawk), Dave Lombardo (ex-Slayer, Suicidal Tendencies, Misfits), Justin Pearson (The Locust, Retox) and Michael Crain (Retox, Festival of Dead Deer), Dead Cross traffic in musical unpredictability. As such, they've just surprise-released a self-titled, four-track EP — get it here — and unleashed a gory video for new song "My Perfect Prisoner," which premiered via Louder. The clip was produced by Eric Livingston, who also created the cover art for both the band's full-length debut and this EP.

"I think part of Dead Cross' motives are to bridge gaps between useless genres and definitions," Pearson says. "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."

Dead Cross (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 29th release. Pre-orders are available now.

On June 2nd, the band will embark on its first-ever European tour — scroll down for tour dates, as well as the EP's cover art and track list.
