Dead Cross Release Surprise EP, Drop New Video Ahead Of Tour

Hardcore supergroup Dead Cross have surprised released a new, self-titled EP today via frontman Mike Patton’s label, Ipecac Recordings. With a world tour kicking off tonight, the band has debuted a new music video for their track ‘My Perfect Prisoner’, which you can watch below.

Justin Pearson commented:

I think part of Dead Cross’ motives are to bridge gaps between useless genres and definitions. 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.”

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 (
