Dead Cross debut a visual rebuke of organized religion in the band’s video for “Church of the Motherfuckers”, off their self-titled album released this past Augusut.
“We are not capable of understanding aspects of molecular genetics, let alone the universe,” said bass player Justin Pearson of the Michael Panduro-directed clip. “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.”
The band, which includes Dave Lombardo (ex-Slayer/Suicidal Tendencies), the aforementioned Justin Pearson (Retox/The Locust), Mike Patton (Faith No More/Tomahawk) and Michael Crain (Retox, Festival of Dead Deer), recently announced they’ll head to Europe next summer, already confirming a June 17 performance at Download Paris. More dates will be announced soon.
The video, below, goes full horror while mixing in a priest-led fight club.
