MIKE PATTON JOINS DEAD CROSS!


Mike Patton's newest high-profile collaboration has been announced. He will join Dead Cross a supergroup featuring former Slayer drummer and co-founder Dave Lombardo, Justin Pearson (of the Locust and Retox), and Michael Crain (also of Retox, and Festival of Dead Deer).



The band has been around since last year, but according to a press release, Patton has just come on board as lead singer, replacing former vocalist Gabe Serbian (The Locust, Cattle Decapitation, Holy Molar). 


The group are currently working on their debut, which is expected to arrive next year on Ipecac Recordings

Lombardo formed Dead Cross a year ago with Serbian, bassist Justin Pearson and guitarist Michael Crain, all of whom have spent time in Retox; Serbian left in 2013, while Pearson and Crain remain active. At the time, Lombardo described their sound as “just straightforward brutal punk — metal-esque, but it’s definitely not metal. I think it definitely leans more towards the punk style, because I feel that the way things are in the world, a punk attitude is definitely necessary to help you along with the s— that’s going on. …There’s no time to sing ‘We Are the World’ or all this bulls—, we’re all pissed right now, and there’s no better way to release anger than to be in a punk band and write punk music.”

  1. Wow, congratulations on your talented addition! Wishing your group success and prosperity! By the way, Mike in the photos turned out to be very brutal and cool! I think if you posted this photo on your Instagram account, they would get a bunch of likes, since according to my observations, very similar photos have at least 25-27 thousand likes. I am sure their authors resort to the services of https://soclikes.com/buy-instagram-auto-likes to buy likes.
