DEAD CROSS cover Black Flag’s “Rise Above”

Created in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and staunchly opposing police brutality and systemic racism, DEAD CROSS’ version of BLACK FLAG’s “Rise Above” can be watched above. As such, the track opens with a recording of a Los Angeles resident voicing his displeasure with the LAPD during a public comment period from a regularly scheduled LA police commission meeting.

The video for โ€œRise Aboveโ€ was edited by Displaced/Replaced. Filmed by Dave Lombardo, The Lonely Rager, and Becky DiGiglio. Track mixed by Jim Goodwin.

DEAD CROSS!

Dead Cross emerged out of a series of unlikely happenstance, fallen-through plans, and last-minute musical experimentation. The chaos of its creation seems apt; after all, the band is comprised entirely of artists who have thrived playing tightly-coiled turmoilโ€”intelligent dissonance disguised as disorder. Consisting of Dave Lombardo (Slayer, Suicidal Tendencies, The Misfits), Justin Pearson (The Locust, Planet B, Deaf Club), Michael Crain (Retox, Festival of Dead Deer, Cunts), and Mike Patton (Faith No More, Fantomas, Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk), the impressive, expansive, and eclectic list of prior bands collectively played in would be enough to ensure the unyielding ferocity of the music… but a resume isnโ€™t necessary, here. Dead Cross stands on its own, speaks volumes with its multilayered evil-genius vocals, manic guitar riffs, and severe rhythms.
