Here's another one to check off your "must see" list, as Dead Cross, the hardcore band featuring Dave Lombardo and Mike Patton, have just announced their first North American tour. The group is rounded out by Retox's Justin Pearson and Michael Crain.

“Everything about Dead Cross screams aggression," said Lombardo. “I have no idea what kind of chaos it will conjure onstage or in the audience... but I know it's going to be a hell of a good time. Really looking forward to hitting the road with these guys." The tour gets underway Aug. 10 at the Observatory in Santa Ana, Calif.

Lombardo, Pearson and Crain had been working together in Dead Cross when their singer exited. The band eventually enticed Faith No More's Mike Patton to take over, and their new self-titled album will be released on Aug. 4 via Patton's Ipecac Recordings. Pre-orders for the disc are currently available here.

There will be special guests throughout the tour, but the additional acts have yet to be named. Tickets for the run go on sale this Thursday at 10AM local time. See the dates listed below.
