The perceptive folks at ThePRP noticed a new Noisey interview in which Deftones frontman Chino Moreno revealed that his Crosses side-project has signed a deal with Sumerian Records for the release of their third EP. Specifically, Moreno said the following:
"Crosses has recorded a bunch of material and we have a third EP that's ready to go. We just signed a deal with Sumerian Records to release it. We're thinking of putting it out in October and doing a couple shows around then. I've also been working with [Stolen Babies drummer] Gil Sharone, [Crosses member] Chuck Doom, and my buddy Todd [Wilkinson], who plays [guitar] in Team Sleep. We always hang out and make music. We all got together for the Guitar Center "Drum Off" that Gil did [in March 2013]. We wrote five or six tunes and played the gig. It's all instrumental at this point. I just turned 40, and I've realized that I like having a regular output of music and doing it consistently, whether it ends up in record format or if it doesn't come out at all. As much as I can do it now, creating music with other people is definitely fun. It's my number one hobby. I'm not too much into video games or other things. I like to spend my time creating stuff with friends."Sumerian has yet to comment on their deal with Crosses, but perhaps this was what Sumerian founder Ash Avildsen was talking about last month when he said the following: "This month there will be a Sumerian signing announcement that is a huge moment for the label, for myself and for great music. so excited #1" Crosses (aka †††) also featuers Shaun Lopez (Far) and Scott Chuck.
