I don’t know how else to say it — I cannot wait for the new Dead Cross to drop. The frantic hardcore punk/thrashy supergroup featuring Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle), Dave Lombardo (ex-Slayer, Suicidal Tendencies), Justin Pearson (The Locust), and Mike Crain (Retox) put out a banger with their 2017 debut self-titled release and II sure looks like they’re keeping up the pace.
A little over a month after the release of the first single “Reign of Error” — which we’ve already said is absolutely fucking boss — the band’s put out the second single “Heart Reformer” and its accompanying music video.
While the first track was canned madness in a 105 second package, this new single is a comparatively slow burn at nearly four minutes. That’s not to say that it’s actually slow tempo-wise. On the contrary, it keeps up the thrash sound that doesn’t relent until it’s over. Crain said the song specifically feels like a badass tune for the live crowd in the future.
“’Heart Reformer’ was as much fun to write as it is to listen to. It’s a classic Dead Cross song. It’s a pit stirrer and a fist pumper!”
And though the music video for “Reign of Error” felt like an animation project by way of a meth-addicted madman, the video for “Heart Reformer” is a live action clip with a whole lot of back alley medical malpractice. It’s got horror elements that fit in well with the music. It’s a film student’s final project, except it’s directed by Dark Details (a.k.a. Chris J. Cunningham).
Dead Cross’ II is coming out on October 28 via Ipecac Recordings and is available for preorder today.
