Dead Cross (Ex-Slayer, Faith No More, Etc.) Premiere “Church Of The Motherfuckers” Music Video

Dead Cross (Ex-Slayer, Faith No More, Etc) have premiered a new video for their song “Church Of The Motherfuckers,” via Revolver. This song is from the band’s self-titled debut album.

Justin Pearson commented:

“We are not capable of understanding aspects of molecular genetics, let alone the universe. I’d rather not fill in the blanks with outlandish oppressive morals, offensive social politics, and patriarchal garbage. In the year 2017 AD some humans still think there is a god.”


Mike Patton Says Faith No More Are On An “Extended Break”, Wants To Release More Music With Dead Cross

Mike Patton was recently interviewed by Full Metal Jackie, and revealed the Faith No More are on an “extended break,” He also discussed Dead Cross and his hopes of releasing more music with the group. You can read his statements regarding those topics below.

Patton said the following when asked if he had anything to share about Faith No More’s current status:

“No, I would share but I don’t know anything. So, we’re kind of on a extended break and if something happens, it’ll happen organically and naturally but I kind of don’t think it will. I kind of feel like we’ve tipped the scales a little bit, but we’ll see, who knows? I’ve learned my lesson not to say ‘No.’”

He then added:

“It’s one of those things, kind of like going to a family reunion and get along with your uncle and you’re like, ‘Oh, we’re going to go to the next BBQ. Fine.’ It’s really the way it is for us.”

He also said the following when asked if Dead Cross would continue:

“I think we should. It’s going so well and it feels really good — we get along real well. I don’t see why we shouldn’t put out a few more records and keep touring. So, we’ll see. I’ve learned to not make too many promises in advance, so, who knows? [laughs]”
