Members of Dead Cross (ex-Slayer, Faith No More, Retox, etc.) were detained by police yesterday in Texas for unspecified reasons. Earlier today drummer Dave Lombardo shared a photo of what appears to be bandmates Michael Crain (guitar) and Justin Pearson (bass) in handcuffs. An official statement has since been put forth by the band's publicist and reads as follows:

"Members of Dead Cross were temporarily placed in police custody while in Houston on August 15. The band, who just released their eponymous debut album via Ipecac Recordings and are on tour in support of the album, had their gear searched and were restrained during the inspection.

"The band members have been advised by legal counsel not to provide further comment on the incident. More information is expected to be made available from authorities following arraignment."
