MIKE PATTON Joins DEAD CROSS

by | Dec 12, 2016

How’s this for a surprise? Faith No More vocalist Mike Patton has another project to add to his repertoire — he’s now the singer of Dead Cross.

The punk band that features Dave Lombardo (ex-Slayer, Suicidal Tendencies), Justin Pearson (The Locust, Retox, Head Wound City), and Michael Crain (Retox) will be releasing a new album with Patton on vocalist sometime in 2017.

Patton takes the place of Gabe Serbian, who the band parted with back in September. Last we heard they’ve been tracking their debut album with producer Ross Robinson (Glassjaw, At The Drive-In).

The forthcoming record will be released through Patton’s own Ipecac Recordings.
