Crosses (†††), the equal parts dark and trippy electronic project from Chino Moreno of Deftones and Shaun Lopez of Far, have released their self-titled debut full-length album for streaming. Crosses have released two EPs in the past, both originally available for listening through the band’s website.

Prior to the album, Crosses released two singles, “Bi†ches Brew” and “†he Epilogue”.” We featured the release of “Bi†ches Brew” and you can check out the official music video below.

“With a song like ‘†he epilogue,’ at no point was anyone thinking ‘Wow, we might have a hit on our hands here.’ We were writing because we loved writing together – that’s it. If we have some radio success with (†††) that would be awesome,” says Moreno with regards to the catchiness of the new album. He explained that, unlike the pressure he felt from the record company when he was a part of Deftones, his writing for Crosses is completely organic.

After the album’s four-month delay, you can now stream ††† via Pitchfork, prior to its official release tomorrow through Sumerian Records. You can buy the album through the band’s website.

Winter 2014 Editorial Intern As a kid, I liked pretty terrible music. I was quiet, mousy, and weird–that is, until my dad introduced me to the Beatles, the Allman Brothers, and all that classic Rock and Roll. I remain weird, but am now weirdly in love with bands like Sleeping In The Aviary, the Shouting Matches and Man Man (seriously, what are you doing reading this…go check those bands out!).
