Crosses, the band featuring Deftones vocalist Chino Moreno, ex-Far guitarist Shaun Lopez and Chuck Doom, originally released three EPs in 2012. Then all of a sudden the band returned on Christmas Day 2020 with a cover of "The Beginning Of The End" by '90s electropop band Cause & Effect. Since then, Crosses appeared to be in the studio, but it was difficult to say given there was only one photo.
Now, by basically spelling it out with a ton of pictures, Crosses has announced they're definitely recording new music. The band has shared photos of each of its members recording, with the caption "May 2021". So yeah, expect new Crosses.
This is all in line with what Moreno was saying back in October about having more time now that Deftones have released Ohms.
"A few days ago, I just moved into a new place a little over a month ago, so I’ve been setting up my studio room in here and I broke out some of that [unreleased] stuff from then, and I started working on it!" said Moreno. "Now that the Deftones record is done and there’s no touring really in the near future, I kinda have time to work on stuff so I’m definitely going to dig in and see where I can go with that.
"I really really like that project. The best part about it for me was no one knew we were making that record even. We put it out as EP’s first and we just kinda dropped out of nowhere. Making music without any expectations was super freeing and fun. I really love doing it. I like the guys that I work with in that so I’m gonna try to get some of that stuff finalized… finished up."
