CROSSS take their sound and inspiration from 70’s proto-drone, lo-fi indie, noise and metal. Their dirge, punishing volume, and composition intensity is offset by haunting vocal melodies. Intense drumming and ambitious improvised guitar create at times, sounds of prolonged trance and meditative phrase.
The group began in Halifax, Canada in 2012 as a duo, but following several relocations and lineup shifts, is now based in Toronto Canada and has grown into a trio.
CROSSS have toured extensively in Canada and the USA, and have shared the stage with Viet Cong, Built To Spill, Moon Duo, Thee Oh Sees, King Tuff, Dirty Beaches, Pop1280, and Oneida.
CROSSS’ debut 12″ Obsidian Spectre was released on Telephone Explosion in 2013. Their follow-up LP titled LO will be release on June 16th, 2015.
