The duo of Chino Moreno and Shaun Lopez welcome special guests El-P and Robert Smith of The Cure on the 15-track release.
After a healthy online tease, the tandem of Shaun Lopez and Deftones-frontman Chino Moreno have again converged as Crosses to deliver their first full length album in nine years. Goodnight, God Bless, I Love U, Delete. will land October 13th and follows the band’s late 2022 EP release, PERMANENT.RADIANT, which debuted as a precursor to a more comprehensive full length in the months ahead.
The introduction of the album and the arrival date comes with the first reveal from the project with the brilliant lead single, “Invisible Hand”. Showcasing a masterful vocal performance from Chino Moreno and dynamic programming and instrumentation from Lopez, the tandem work in lockstep to craft a sophisticated brand of electro-pop.
The confirmation of Goodnight, God Bless, I Love U, Delete. also includes some serious star power in the way of special guest contributions on the album. Among the names included in the credits feature spots from El-P of Run the Jewels and the legendary Robert Smith of The Cure.
Along with the album announcement and the video launch, Crosses have confirmed a handful of intimate live dates. The band will perform two nights at the Masonic Lodge at Hollywood Forever Cemetery ahead of their festival appearance at Darker Waves in Huntington Beach, CA. From there, the band will host an evening in Brooklyn just after the holiday before closing out the year with a play in San Francisco on December 4th. See the current list of confirmed dates below.
Goodnight, God Bless, I Love U, Delete. arrives October 13th via Warner Records. Physical copies of the release are currently available for pre-order – HERE
