Crosses in Raleigh

Crosses is currently on tour in North America and Europe, showcasing their sophomore LP, “Goodnight, God Bless, I Love U, Delete.”

Crosses (stylized as †††) is an electronic alternative rock music group featuring vocalist Chino Moreno and producer/guitarist Shaun Lopez. Their music project seamlessly blends elements of alternative rock, synth-pop, trip-hop, and ambient music, emphasizing melody and mood. Despite the protentional for dark undertones, the duo characterizes their sound as “contemporary.” They draw influence from notable bands such as Nine Inch Nails and The Cure, which adds depth and richness to their musical pallet.

Crosses recently emerged from a self-described “hiatus.” Although there hasn’t been much public news or releases, Chino Moreno and Shaun Lopez have been quietly immersed in music production for the past four years. In 2022, the band made a comeback with a new EP titled “Permanent Radiant,” signaling to fans that they are back with their signature sound. Shaun Lopez highlighted that the success of this release bolstered their confidence, leading to the creation of tracks that eventually found their place on the 2023 sophomore album, “Goodnight, God Bless, I Love U, Delete.”

Chino Moreno, producer and vocalist of Deftones, brings his distinctive vocals to Crosses, contributing to a new and ethereal atmospheric sound.  Producer and multi-instrumentalist Shaun Lopez carries his own weight within the group, boasting a strong background in music production, guitars, and synthesizers. Shaun intuitively knows when to step up, making his sounds heard, and this ability can be particularly impressive at times.

The 18-song setlist you’ll experience on most tour night offers a blend of old and new tracks, including classics such as “This Is a Trick,” “Bitches Brew,” and “Telepathy” from their self-titled 2014 debut LP. The lineup also features big hits like “Invisible Hand” and “Big Youth” from their 2023 LP, “Goodnight, God Bless, I Love U, Delete.” One of the standout moments of the show was the Depeche Mode-influenced track “Vivien” from the 2022 ‘PERMANENT.RADIANT – EP,’ boasting a captivating mix of fluttering electronic and ‘80s new wave sounds.

Crosses continues on tour in North America until March of 2024 with upcoming shows in Sacramento, California; Portland, Oregon; and Seattle, Washington. After a brief break, the band will embark on a European tour in June 2024 with shows in Germany, France and the United Kingdom.
