“Heart Reformer”, the second single from Dead Cross’ new album, II, has landed online! The four-headed Hydra featuring Mike Patton, Dave Lombardo, Justin Pearson and Michael Crain, will release their abrasive 9-song album, II, on Oct. 28th.
The album, while both a raucous hardcore collection, and at times, a politically-charged opus, has its roots in friendship, with the band rallying together after Crain received a surprise cancer diagnosis.
“Words can’t even begin to describe how much this album means to me. It’s birthed of pain and uncertainty,” adds Crain. “The slow, excruciatingly painful, and nauseating recovery from cancer treatments were the catalyst for every riff and note on this album. However, my will to live and be with my brothers Justin, Dave, Mike, and co-producer Ross Robinson, got me out of bed and running into the studio every day to get it all on tape.”
