Here at Eyesore Merch, we are happy to announce that we now have Crosses – or ††† – merch in stock! The project formed by Chino Moreno (of Deftones, Team Sleep, Palms), Shaun Lopez (Far, The Revolution Smile) and Chuck Doom is something outside either of the former two’s usual style; although it should not come as a surprise if you know about Chino’s love for the likes of Depeche Mode and Duran Duran.
Crosses are a sort of pop-rock/electronic band that fuses synth-pop melodies with the occasional use of guitars to create big choruses – all the while Chino croons with dark romantic lyrics shrouded in mystery. So far, the reaction to this project has been nothing less than fanatical.
Even though they only formed in 2011, Crosses has managed to achieve a lot in its time so far, especially in consideration with each member’s outside commitments. Releasing the equally welcomed “EP 1” in 2011 and “EP 2” in 2012, they have contributed a track to the Batman: Arkham City game and a remix of the infamous Dragula track on the Rob Zombie remix album “Mondo Sexhead”. In 2013, they unveiled a track called Bitches Brew (a clear tribute to the legendary Miles Davis) and performed several live performances throughout the year. Now they have scheduled the release of their debut self-titled album for the 11th February 2014.
So it’s no surprise that we’re excited to be able to spread the name of Crosses here in the UK! We’re looking forward to what the future brings with this trio.
