Sumerian Records signs Crosses (Deftones)

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.

Chino should really just focus on deftones. If sumerian signed em they can't be good


anonymous 9/3/2013 10:43:21 PM

They have a lot of shit bands to make them money but at the same time I still respect Sumerian more than most labels ever.

Palms was sort of a letdown, new Deftones isn't it all what it should be. So Chino, this is your last chance. 3rd strike and youre fcking out.

Really, fãggots? crosses is super sick is correct you two dumbasses. saying crosses are super sick is like saying 'the band are super sick'


anonymous 9/4/2013 11:03:19 AM

"CROSSES 'IS' SICK" is correct you dumb, english bastards. CROSSES is ONE NOUN (a band name), therefore it should be referred to singularly with IS.


anonymous 9/4/2013 12:09:54 PM

you mother fckers. crosses is plural is the band name was cross it would be ok to say 'cross is sick' but since they are a plural band it is 'crosses ARE sick'


anonymous 9/4/2013 12:13:57 PM

^ agree 100% if it were a solo musician ie Chino going solo w/o any one else helping it would be ok to call his band Cross, but since it is a supergroup of 5 members, and 5 is a plural number, Crosses is the best name and there for 'Crosses are sick' is proper.


anonymous 9/4/2013 12:18:04 PM

The f?gs saying "crosses is sick" need to get off momma's pc and go back to first grade


anonymous 9/4/2013 1:40:02 PM

Retards fighting about grammar , come on read the post, comment on the band and move on, no one cares if "so and so is stoked" or if you think they are "gays" read it, if you don't like it move on, and stop trying to be an english teacher. Now onto what i think of this band (which is why i clicked on the link no to read 13 year olds be tough) Can't wait for crosses to put something new out, love them


anonymous 9/4/2013 6:41:02 PM

retawd convention.


RickRock 9/4/2013 7:43:23 PM

Theoretically, both "are" and "is" could be used under different contexts. But given that we're referring to a singular moniker of a band versus the multiple items the name references, using "is" would be arguably correct. Although if they used the definite article "The" before Crosses, "are" would be used as it's definitively implied there are multiple entities being referenced by the band name and would simplify things quite a bit, except only shitty punk bands still use "The" in their names.


RickRock 9/4/2013 7:43:45 PM

Also, that Palms record was fcking awesome.


anonymous 9/4/2013 8:46:01 PM

Palms > Crosses.. I guess the new Crosses album will be full of djent


anonymous 9/5/2013 2:01:20 AM

Avildsen spending all of Daddy's money to sign big names so he can look like a big shot. He will be the next Tony Victory when all the royalties need to be paid. Hope Daddy directs some more movies kid or you know how to spread your ass to old men for money.


anonymous 9/6/2013 4:07:20 PM

you people are pathetic
