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.
You can check out our selection of Crosses merch, and visit the official Crosses website or their facebook.
Faith No More
In light of the good response to our guest post from contributor, Ben from the music blog Ben Likes Music we have just added a sweet looking Faith No More ‘Angel Dust’ T-Shirt & Hoodie to the store.
So if you read the initial post and still don’t own the shirt or hoody then be sure to head over and bag one now! If you didn’t read the initial post then do so HERE….. then go bag a T-Shirt, hoodie or both!
Plus its now officially winter and freezing cold out, so the hoody is a great idea.
Yesterday we shared some brilliant photos of Bossk playing live at Nottingham’s Rock City club. The band are back impressing live audiences and here at Eyesore Merch we are looking forward to their live appearance at the Damnation Festival in Leeds where they will be playing on the Eyesore Merch sponsored stage!
In further Bossk news we want to share with you a new track entitled “Pick Up Artist” that the band have made available to download for free from their website – click here to go download this awesome new track.
Eyesore Merch have also got a new “Pick Up Artist” t-shirt design available to pre-order from our website; this adds to our already awesome Bossk t-shirt range that features limited edition t-shirt designs and a tote bag.
It’s brilliant to see new material from the band as well as the live performance, both of which are getting us excited for a future new album!
