If you are into rock music or more specifically electronic rock music, then grab your Crosses tickets and get ready to dance like never before.
The seeds for the formation of Crosses were planted when Chino Moreno and Shaun Lopez got together to jam. Moreno, a "Deftones" vocalist is among the most famous names in metal history. He is one of the founding members of Deftones. On the other hand, Shaun Lopez was one of the masterminds behind the inception of "Far," the alternative rock and post-hardcore band.
Moreno and Lopez shared a mutual passion for music and had been very good friends since childhood. They asked Chuck Doom to join them and the three began to create music together. It was meant to be a project a little different from what they had been doing before. This was personal. Crosses was the name they came up with and the trio began to spend hours each day in the studio. Sixteen tracks were completed which they planned to put together as part of different EPs.
Crosses came out with "EP 1," their debut effort in 2011. It went on to receive quite a lot of acclaim on the critical front with "Alternative Press" giving it four stars out of five. That gave them the confidence to keep going. Their track "The Years" was picked as the soundtrack for the video game, "Batman: Arkham City" and that brought their way more good reviews.
Crosses then came out with their second EP in the first month of 2012. With the band's reputation growing quickly, they went on to perform at the Quilmes Rock festival and the Lollapalooza Chile festival later the same year. The band had planned on coming out with their third EP but that was put on hold. Moreno had to do some work with Deftones and for one of his other side projects titled "Palms."
Crosses got their biggest break since their formation in 2013 when Sumerian Records offered them a recording contract. That gave them the chance to start working on their debut album. In October, the band made the official announcement that their first album will be out next month. That however didn't happen and 11th February 2014 was given as the new date of release.
Crosses released two tracks in between "The Epilogue" and "Bitches Brew." Both were posted online and went on to receive quite a lot of positive feedback from across the board. They did release their self-titled debut album on 11th February after all. It debuted at the 26th spot on the Billboard Top 200 charts which wasn't a bad achievement at all. The album had critics purring over it as well. It got three and a half stars out of five from "Allmusic." "Clash" and "Drowned in Sound" gave it seven and nine points out of ten respectively.
The response Crosses's debut album has received is a pretty good start for the band. It has given them a good, solid platform to build on. They have the talent to make it to the top that is quite obvious. The band has hit the road for what promises to be a very special road trip. Book your Crosses tickets and enjoy the ride with one of the fastest rising bands in music today.
