Crosss Prep 'Obsidian Spectre,' Map Out North American Tour

Crosss Prep 'Obsidian Spectre,' Map Out North American Tour
There's not much information available on the internet about Halifax band Crosss, but their debut album looks to be a decidedly trippy affair. Obsidian Spectre is due out on June 11 via Telephone Explosion Records.

The album reportedly draws on reference points ranging from drone to psychedelia to '90s post-punk. A press release cryptically reads, "Look deep inside the heart of the  mountain, block out all the sun, listen  to the tales of some old crow, half-truths and old world portent, an omen, lie down to worship, now see a bright light, turn up your stereo, hear that old sound now."

The full album is currently available to stream at the bottom of this page. Most of these eight songs are fairly succinct, but closer "Will-o'-the-Wisp" is 20 minutes long. A slightly lurid video for "Lucky Loki" is also below.

In the coming weeks, Crosss will hit the road for an extensive North American tour in the U.S. and Canada. Scroll past the tracklist to see the schedule.
