Dead Cross has released a new, four-track, self-titled EP and a gory video for “My Perfect Prisoner,” a single off the new EP.
The SoCal hardcore group comprised of Dave Lombardo, Mike Patton, Justin Pearson and Michael Crain, have released the EP via Ipecac Recordings.

Dead Cross ‘Bridges Gaps’
“I think part of Dead Cross’ motives are to bridge gaps between useless genres and definitions,” said Pearson. “Part also might be to just burn that shit down. It’s in our collective DNA. Either way, as long as people love it or hate it, we succeed.”

“My Perfect Prisoner” was produced by Eric Livingston who also created the cover art for both the band’s full-length debut and the new EP.
Dead Cross, which is also the title of the band’s 2017 full-length debut, is available digitally, with a limited 10-inch black/green swirl vinyl version set for a June 29 release. Pre-orders are available now.
