Dead Cross, featuring Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle), Dave Lombardo (Slayer, Testament), Justin Pearson (The Locust, Retox) and Michael Crain (Retox) have announced details of their follow-up to 2017 self-titled album.
II is set for release via Patton‘s Ipecac Recordings label on October 28. In conjunction with this announcement, the band has shared the music video for first single, Reign of Error, which you can watch below.
The album is said to have its roots in friendship, with the band rallying together after Crain received a surprise cancer diagnosis.
“Words can’t even begin to describe how much this album means to me. It’s birthed of pain and uncertainty,” says Crain. The slow, excruciatingly painful, and nauseating recovery from cancer treatments were the catalyst for every riff and note on this album. However, my will to live and be with my brothers Justin, Dave, Mike, and co-producer Ross Robinson, got me out of bed and running into the studio every day to get it all on tape.”
