Chino Moreno’s (Crosses) signs with major label for new music
Dark and dreamy electro-pop group ††† (Crosses), the project of Deftones singer Chino Moreno with founding guitarist Far Shaun Lopez, have signed a new global recording contract with Warner Records.
This means that more music is probably expected soon by the spin-off group who released their debut album. Crosses in 2014 on Sumerian Records after releasing three successive ††† EPs. After a six-year lull, ††† returned in December 2020 with “The Beginning of the End,” a cover of a ’90s synth-pop song that marked their first new material since their first collection.
This week, Lopez announced the recording deal while congratulating his bandmate Moreno and more.
“Very happy to report that @crossesmusic has recently signed a global deal with @warnerrecords,” Lopez said on Instagram on Wednesday (December 22nd). “I can’t wait to work with such an amazing team. Hi Brother @chinowmoreno, we made it.”
He continued, “Shout out to our manager… for leading the way.… Last but not the least, the dynamic duo who really run the damn show, the @amychance @risamoramoreno wives. I appreciate you.”
Crosses’ EP and EP were self-published in 2011-2012. EP followed on Sumerian just before the release of their debut album in February 2014. Warner Records, formerly known as Warner Bros. Records, is a subsidiary of Warner Music Group, one of the “big three” labels.
