New York, NY (Top40 Charts) ††† (Crosses) have today dropped a surprise release, a cover of 90's electropop band Cause & Effect's "The Beginning Of The End".

This is the first new music for the alternative band, fronted by Chino Moreno (Deftones) and guitarist Shaun Lopez, since their 2014 self titled record.

Crosses (usually stylized as †††) is the musical side project of Deftones singer Chino Moreno, Far guitarist Shaun Lopez, and bassist Chuck Doom, based in Los Angeles, California, and formed in 2011.
The musical style of Crosses is often referred to as electronic, darkwave or dark pop, dream pop or witch house. However, Carson O'Shoney of Consequence of Sound and Daniel Brockman of The Boston Phoenix note that Crosses only shares a resemblance to witch house in aesthetics and imagery, and not the group's actual music. O'Shoney said that Crosses' witch house influence is "noticeable just by looking at the tracklist - every song has at least one † in it. The name of the band is †††. The name of the EP is †. Everything about the EP points to witch house - until you listen to the actual music." The group's decision to use this imagery stems from Chino Moreno's interest in the art and mystique around religion. Moreno however also said, "I didn't want people to think we are a religious band, a satanic band or that we are a witch-house band. It's difficult using a religious symbol, but at the same time, I think in an artistic way, it can totally go somewhere else and I think we are kind of walking that line."
