Dead Cross — the SoCal hardcore unit manned by Mike Patton, Dave Lombardo, Justin Pearson and Michael Crain — just surprise-released a killer self-titled EP, featuring among its four tracks a new song called "Skin of a Redneck." Today, the group dropped a fun, gory animated video vignette soundtracked by said cut, which visualizes a taco with two severed fingers in it, drawn portraits of the band members and a skeleton hand tearing Patton's face off. Watch the clip, which was created by artist Eric Livingston, below.

On June 2nd, the band will embark on its first-ever European tour — scroll down for tour dates, and for more on Dead Cross, read our Q&A with Patton from last year, when the band released its debut full-length, and our recent interview with Lombardo about his emotional, long-overdue return to Cuba, the country of his birth.
