Dead Cross are bringing their frenetic blitz of thrashing hardcore fury to stages across Europe this Summer, appearing at major festivals including Primavera Sound (ES), Hellfest (FR), Download (UK & FR), Grasspop (BE), DOUR (BE) and Tuksa (FI), as well as headline club shows across the mainland, and a show in Moscow, Russia.

Dave Lombardo remarks, “Since Dead Cross made its rattling debut, touring Europe has been a goal. We have had incredible support from the European fans and I can’t wait for them to experience this band live. We intend on leaving the fans musically beaten and sonically battered.”

Meanwhile, as if to continue the strong socio-political commentary that permeates their debut album, Justin Pearson adds, “it will be a literal breath of fresh air to leave the US for a chunk of time in light of the political rhetoric that we are currently experiencing. Perhaps by the time we return, we can see the complete demise of #45.”

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
