By DONNA BALANCIA
Don’t expect Mike Patton and company to leave any controversial subject unchecked.
Take a look at the latest video from Dead Cross, which kicks off a two-month tour at The Observatory on Aug. 10.
After The Observatory, the band, which is comprised of Mike Patton, Dave Lombardo, Justin Pearson (The Locust, Retox) and Michael Crain (Retox, Festival of Dead Deer), goes on to dates in Las Vegas, Phoenix, Los Angeles and Sacramento before hitting the East Coast.
