Death Bell is really good after a few listen, it's not like the rest of the album, it's different and less accessible.
This song remembers me Team sleep in some kind of way, maybe the beat or the melancholy, or just the originality.

It's that the first time Chino uses a low deep dubbing voice ? It brings a real plus to the song.

Death Bell is great musically, but I wish there was a little more variation in what Chino does on it. Still, very good song.

Their Kimmel performance was pretty painful to watch and hear.

The mix was pretty bad yes, the voice was behind all the instruments.

@Romain, what do you think about the last EP ?

how many copies of the vinyl were pressed? anyone know? the price jumped up to twice the price in 2 weeks. i found it for 32.99 so i jumped on it.  if i would have known it was a limited press i would have pre ordered freaking last year.

Some people have been saying it's the studio version sped up and with Chino singing on it, but it sounds like a completely different song to me.

Crosses (†††) - Goodbye Horses (Q Lazzarus Cover)

Here's an 8 minute version of the unreleased "†" song mislabeled as Goodbye Horses.

What a great moment, seriously this is awesome.

Has anyone in Canada received their pre-order vinyls yet? I haven't gotten so much as a shipping email and am starting to get a bit annoyed. I got the email that the white vinyl would be delayed and mailed them back that that was a-okay with me but my charcoal vinyl is still MIA. Any info would be much appreciated before I start writing them angry emails.

so just got back from the sydney show where crosses were supporting AFI.

Waited in line for 2 hours with hundreds of AFI fans. THis was fun. lol

Crosses sounded amazing. They played for about 1 hour.
Blk Stallion sounds fucking huge live. Srsly love that song.
Favourites were Frontiers, 1987, Cross (live sped up version), love chino's melodies in that, really want to hear a studio version.
Bermuda locket also sounded really cool live. Chino really crooned in this.
I also love watching chuck play, he has such a unique vibe on stage and you can tell he's so into the groove.

It was a really good show, but weird becuase i was probably 1 out of 10 crosses fans there.
Everyone in the crowd just stood there. A few fuckwits started chanting "AFI" in between songs, as well as "play change"!!

Alot better than crosses soundwave set, the sound was better, and they played for longer.

Now i hope palms do a tour in Australia... ::)

Is the crosses store working for anybody? I ordered the white and yellow crosses shirt and they sent me a blue one. Wtf. And the link to the store on the website doesnt seem to work

Still no word on the vinyls. Emailed them to ask what was up and they said there had been a delay in transport of the CD's. Well that'd be just fine if I'd ordered a fucking CD!! Emailed them again to tell them that doesn't help or even begin to answer my question and I have yet to hear back. This is probably the worst experience I've had with a preorder yet. Fuck the Crosses store. I was going to get a shirt but those fucks aren't getting any more of my money.

They fucked mine up too, ordered the first ep shirt and the second ep shirt. Got 2 of the 2nd ep, does her face look alittle bit too dark to you? It does to me, doesn't even look like a head just a big black blob.

So I finally got my shipping confirmation but the tracking number says it was already delivered... in 2012... to Taiwan. It's 2014 and I live in Canada. Also they said since the white vinyl was delayed they'd send a CD with it to make up for it but the shipping confirmation doesn't mention anything about a CD. I don't really care about the CD but it just seems this order has gone as painfully as possible. It's pretty discouraging. Also absolutely no mention about the posters. Paid to get the tubes so I know they'll ship separately but goddamn this is like pulling teeth.

Give it a little time for USPS to update the tracking number. Same thing happened to me but it updated after about a day. Posters turned up separately in a tube.

On a related, my pre-order bundles were shipped on February 11th. My total order cost was $240 (inc. $60 for shipping), still haven't received and no updates from USPS since February 23rd. My parcel even got denied entry into Canada for not meeting customs requirements....even though I live in the UK!  ???
