WATCH: Crosses (†††) – “The Epilogue”

Crosses (†††) have released an eerie new video for their track “The Epilogue,” off of their recently released LP, Crosses, out now on Sumerian Records.

Featuring Shaun Lopez of Far, and Chino Moreno of Deftones, Crosses (†††) is a dream pop infused delve into indie rock, and the recently released video certainly attests to that. Featuring static images, blurred figures, and surreal storytelling, the video for “The Epilogue” is a fitting physical portrayal of the band.

Continuing with the creepy aspects presented in their video for “Bi†ches Brew,” it seems that the band is solidifying a visual landscape for …

FPSF

Free Press Summer Fest Reveals Ridiculous Lineup

Houston’s Free Press Summer Fest (FPSF) announced its lineup today, and it’s a doozy. The two-day festival will be held on May 31-June 1 and features Jack White and Vampire Weekend in the headlining slots along with a rather eclectic undercard.

This is Jack White’s second announced festival gig as he was previously announced to headline New York’s Governors Ball, which will take place the weekend after FPSF. I hope it isn’t out of line to hope for a full summer tour at this point. As for Vampire Weekend, they’ve already announced a slew of tour dates and festival …

UTG EXCLUSIVE STREAM: Dirty Up – “Home”

The internet has been a useful tool for everyone from acclaimed producer Clams Casino to rap enigma Lil B to launch themselves into various levels of notability. Coincidentally, hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area where Lil B calls home, a rising producer and rapper by the name of Dirty Up is looking to follow a similar path as he gears up to drop his Thrillwave mixtape on January 21.

Fortunately for you, we have the first single from the release, entitled “Home,” along with crucial information to understand where the art he creates is coming from both musically and …

Crosses

††† (Crosses) Sign To Sumerian Records

The group known as ††† (aka Crosses), is the side project of members of Deftones (Chino Moreno, Chuck Doom) and Far (Shaun Lopez). They’ve been together for a couple of years now, and have a pretty decent following. Yesterday they released an update video announcing that they’ve now joined the Sumerian Records family. You can check out the video by taking a look below the jump.

What are your thoughts on ††† signing to Sumerian? It seems a little strange to me, as the band doesn’t produce the type of music that Sumerian Records is usually known for (i.e. Asking …

Deftones’ Chino Moreno Comments On Releasing Album ‘Eros’

Deftones frontman Chino Moreno was asked when fans could expect to hear their shelved album Eros. The band recorded Eros during 2008 and features the final performances of their late bassist Chi Cheng.

He told MTVhive.com:

“I get asked about that record a lot. For a while, I was giving the same answer, “No, no, no, no, no, no, no.” After Chi’s passing, I went back and listened to some of the record and it was a pretty intense experience to say the least. I think it should be released, but we don’t have any definite plans.

Deftones Cover Kris Kross’ “Jump” In St. Louis

Deftones are no strangers to tragedy. Earlier this month the band said goodbye to founding bassist, Chi Cheng, at age 42 after a car accident in November 2008 left him paralyzed and partially conscious. With his loss still fresh in the mind of the band and music fans around the world, news that Kris Kross member, Chris “Mac Daddy” Kelly, passed last night has touched on a wound that had only just begun to heal.

In an attempt to pay tribute to Kelly’s passing, and in a way pay additional tribute to their own fallen comrade, the members of …
