When you pair my favorite vocalist of all-time, Mike Patton (Faith No More, Tomahawk, Mr. Bungle, Fantomas) with one of my favorite drummers of all-time, Dave Lombardo (ex-Slayer, Fantomas) I’m interested, and thus DEAD CROSS has been firmly on my radar. Today, the band which also features Justin Pearson (The Locust, Retox) and Michael Crain (Retox, Festival of Dead Deer) have announced their first North American tour dates.

“Everything about Dead Cross screams aggression,” said Lombardo. “I have no idea what kind of chaos it will conjure on stage or in the audience… but I know it’s going to be a hell of a good time. Really looking forward to hitting the road with these guys.”

The late summer outing kicks off on Aug. 10 at The Observatory in Santa Ana, Calif. and includes a stop at Riot Fest Chicago. Tickets are on-sale this Thursday at 10 a.m. local time.
