Multifaceted avant garde heavy rock unit Dead Cross, which features Dave Lombardo (Suicidal Tendencies, Grip INC., ex-Slayer) and Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Peeping Tom) in their ranks, have dropped a new Official Video. The clip is for the track ‘Seizure And Desist‘ which hails from the band’s upcoming self-titled debut due from Ipecac Recordings on August 4th. Joining Lombardo and Patton in Dead Cross are Justin Pearson (The Locust, Head Wound City, Retox) and Michael Crain (Retox, Festival Of Dead Deer).
The S/T debut was produced by the famed Ross Robinson (Korn, Sepultura, Red Fang, Deftones) and features a glow-in-the-dark cover (CD/LP) created by Eric Livingston, with vinyl available in a limited edition gold and a clear/red/black swirl. Livingston’s art is also depicted and included throughout this new visualizer. Digital pre-orders include instant downloads of “Grave Slave” and “Seizure And Desist“.
Regarding the “Seizure And Desist” clip, Justin Pearson said: “The artist who created our album art, Eric Livingston, came up with this video. As far as I’m concerned, It sums up the current social and political climate of today. For a lot of humanity, this world is a mean motherfucking place. The video captures the severity of the times we live in, as well as a means to communicate beyond basic language using iconic imagery, campy techniques, historical relevance, as well as a glimpse into the future.”
