Two Members Of Dead Cross Ran Into Some Trouble With The Law In Texas (Updated)


Update – August 16th 01:14pm:

The band’s publicist has issued the following statement regarding the incident:

“Aug. 16 2017, Houston Texas – Members of Dead Cross were temporarily placed in police custody while in Houston on Aug. 15. The band, who just released their eponymous debut album via Ipecac Recordings and are on tour in support of the album, had their gear searched and were restrained during the inspection.

The band members have been advised by legal counsel not to provide further comment on the incident. More information is expected to be made available from authorities following arraignment.”

The tour will continue on as planned despite the setback.

Original Story:

It seems that Justin Pearson and Michael Crain of Dead Cross/Retox, etc. fame were recently detained by Texan police for an undisclosed incident. Both Pearson and Crain, along with Dead Cross drummer Dave Lombardo, shared the following Instagram posts earlier today, August 16th. It has yet to be specified what the nature of the apparent detainment.

Given that all three members have since posted to their social media, it doesn’t appear to have been too serious. While none of the trio have yet to provide details, Crain did confirm that the incident was not fake.
