Crosses, the project featuring Deftones vocalist Chino Moreno and Far‘s Shaun Lopez, released their debut album in 2014 and then went silent for a while.
Crosses eventually resurfaced with two covers in 2020 and 2021, followed by a new EP and a handful of singles in 2022. Crosses appears to be keeping up that momentum as they’ve just posted a mysterious teaser to their Twitter. Given it looked like Crosses was in the studio earlier this year, and they’ve got their first show since 2014 booked for November, new material would certainly make sense.
And if you’re new to Crosses, maybe given “Vivien” a spin – it’s the song Moreno feels is the best point of entry.
“I think there’s a reason why we chose that song as the first single… coming back. I know we had the Initiation/Protection single that kind of came out under the radar. But I just feel like [‘Vivien’] encompasses, in the easiest terms, what the project consists of — beat-wise, tempo-wise.
“It kind of depends who I’m playing it for. I feel like Crosses lends itself to catering to different people who are in different moods. There [are] some pretty sullen tracks, there’re some more aggressive tracks, more romantic tracks. So it kind of depends on what mood I’m trying to convey.”
