Chino Moreno on Crosses: ‘The Idea is to Keep Putting Out EPs’

by | Nov 7, 2011

Crosses, featuring Deftones frontman Chino Moreno and Shaun Lopez of Far, have offered some insight into future plans, which include EP releases and a possible album (or double album).

“I hate to sit here and tell everyone exactly how it’s going to roll out because it might change, but the idea is to keep putting out EPs and possibly compile everything and put them all on a record or a double record,” Moreno told “Put it all together as one package and do a very limited special-edition so the people that really want it can get it.”

“We’re not interested in doing any major-label deal or getting in a van and touring across the country or anything like that. It’s more or less just putting out some music. I wouldn’t say we may never play [live]; we might, we may not, I don’t know. But if we do, I’m sure it would be a specialty type of thing. I think everything should be treated like specialty everything: limited, numbered packaging and if we are to do shows, specialty kind of things. I think if we start to look at this as it’s a band and a full-on thing, I think it might take away from the specialness of how it came about and what it is. I think the best part about this, though, is everything you hear was generated by us: three people with nobody else’s opinion, money, favors or whatever. [To Lopez] Not to hype you up too much, it’s pretty awesome that you pretty much recorded every sound on there and mixed it. There is no outside help as far as producers—I’m just not used to that. I’m used to always having a million people around like doing this and engineers. To me, that’s rad because I know that everything on there is untouched.”
