SECRET CHIEFS 3 ANNOUNCED AS SUPPORT ON BULK OF NORTH AMERICAN TOUR

SELF-TITLED DEBUT ARRIVES AUG. 4 VIA IPECAC RECORDINGS

 
 
 
 
 

Dead Cross, the SoCal hardcore band featuring Dave Lombardo (ex-Slayer/Suicidal Tendencies), Justin Pearson (Retox/The Locust), Mike Patton (Faith No More/Tomahawk) and Michael Crain (Retox, Festival of Dead Deer), premiere the video for “Seizure and Desist” via Loudwire (http://loudwire.com/dead-cross-seizure-and-desist-exclusive-video-premiere/).

“The artist who created our album art, Eric Livingston, came up with this video,” explains Pearson. “As far as I’m concerned, It sums up the current social and political climate of today. For a lot of humanity, this world is a mean motherf***ing place. The video captures the severity of the times we live in, as well as a means to communicate beyond basic language using iconic imagery, campy techniques, historical relevance, as well as a glimpse into the future. “

The animated clip arrives as the band preps for the Aug. 4 release of their self-titled debut, which Lombardo tells Rolling Stone is one of the “most brutal albums I’ve ever done.” The 10-track release features a glow-in-the-dark cover (CD/LP) also created by Livingston, with vinyl available in a limited edition gold and a clear/red/black swirl. Digital pre-orders include instant downloads of “Grave Slave” (https://youtu.be/9AEOzqUO3jw) and “Seizure and Desist.” All pre-orders can be found here: http://smarturl.it/DxCx.

Joining Dead Cross on the bulk of their North American tour is Secret Chiefs 3. The San Francisco-based outfit, who describe themselves as “an ever unfolding musical vision,” features Patton’s former Mr. Bungle bandmate, Trey Spruance. “I have no idea what kind of chaos it will conjure on stage or in the audience,” said Lombardo of the five-week outing, continuing, “but I know it’s going to be a hell of a good time.” Tickets are available now.
