“The Epilogue”, the new video from ††† (CROSSES) — DEFTONES frontman Chino Moreno‘s project with FAR guitarist Shaun Lopez — can be seen below. The song comes off ††† (CROSSES)’s self-titled full-length debut, which was released on February 11 via Sumerian Records. The CD includes the songs from ††† (CROSSES)’s two previously released EPs — 2011’s “†” and 2012’s “††”, along with five new tracks.

In a recent interview with RollingStone.com, Moreno stated about ††† (CROSSES)’s sound: “By listening to the music, you can tell that a lot of the influences come from the new-wave era. That was basically the scene that I came up on. I just happened to wind up in a metal band when I was 15. I’ve always had a deep passion for a lot of early electronic and sampled music.”

Asked about ††† (CROSSES)’s heavy use of the cross in the band’s imagery and songtitles, Moreno said: “I think a lot of bands are influenced by religious symbolism and not even necessarily Christianity or Catholicism. Our band definitely doesn’t follow any of those. It’s more of the aesthetic. The art, the way it works. The initial name of the band was going to be HOLY GHOST. But at the last minute, another band came out with the name, so Shaun suggested CROSSES. It’s a very strong symbol. Three crosses is great. It’s great to look at, there’s three of us in the band.”

††† (CROSSES) made its live debut in January 2012 at The Glass House in Pomona, California.

††† (CROSSES) — DEFTONES frontman Chino Moreno‘s project with FAR guitarist Shaun Lopez — has inked a deal with Sumerian Records.

††† (CROSSES)’s label debut is expected to arrive in winter 2013.

The band released its second EP, “††”, in January 2012.

In a 2011 interview with ChinaShop, Moreno stated about how ††† (CROSSES) came together, “I remember I mentioned to [Shaun] one day when we were hanging out, y’know, ‘We should make a record together.’ It just so happened that when I moved to L.A. I ended up living a few blocks away from him. I was down here working on recording some vocals with Shaun. We just clicked. We listened to a lot of the same music. We’ve always worked well together. With this project in particular, I met [guitarist] Chuck over at Shaun‘s house. Chuck was working on some of his solo stuff. I don’t know when they started working together, but they said they were working on a project together and asked if I was interested in contributing vocals. Whenever they were working, I’d just ride my bike over there. A couple different times, I was just like, ‘Let me try singing on this,’ and they were like, ‘OK, cool.’ I’d just go in and throw in a bunch of ideas. Pretty soon they got rid of the idea of getting a bunch of different singers together. We just started working on the record together.”
