Deftones leader Chino Moreno has been on a tear of late. His most famous band made a grand return with their rock-solid seventh album Koi No Yokan, while his dream-metal group with the ex-members of Isis, Palms, shared their self-titled debut in June. But throughout it all, the Northern California hard rock beacon never forgot about † † † (or Crosses) — he promised that the electronics-powered project would return this year, and now it has. Below you can experience “bi†ches brew,” a seething, slowly surging slab of beautiful doom that oozes forth on the back of an unexpected Krautrock groove. Moreno and his partners in Crosses — Far’s Shaun Lopez, and Chuck Doom — are prepping their eponymous debut album for a February 11 release. The 15-track set will include earlier works EP † and EP ††, plus five additional songs. Digital and physical pre-order kicks off November 26 via Sumerian.
