††† (Crosses) at Altar Bar - Concert Preview and Ticket Giveaway - Monday, May 12, 2014

Deftones frontman Chino Moreno has a lot of side-projects. First there was Team Sleep, which was essentially a broodier Deftones, with breakbeats. (One of the tracks was on the second Matrix soundtrack, which gives you a pretty good idea of what that was like.) Then came Palms, in 2013, which is three of the guys from Isis with Chino on vocals. Now there's ††† (pronounced Crosses), who play Altar Bar this Monday, May 12.

Joining Chino is Far guitarist Shaun Lopez and some dude named Chuck Doom on bass. The three put out a pair of EPs before releasing their first full-length in February of this year. The album is reminiscent of Chino's other side projects in that it's a step back from the uptempo alt-metal of Deftones. ††† is atmospheric at times, backed with triphop beats and other electronic flourishes. Others have pointed out a deliberate connection to Witch House. Judge for yourself: here's the first single from the album, "Bitches Brew"

Basically, if you like Deftones, you're gonna like †††. Just don't expect to hear Chino's trademark screams. I'm sure he'll let loose from time to time, but expect to hear something that more closely resembles the whispered bits of "My Own Summer" rather than the refrain. And come to think of it, Deftones don't come around Pittsburgh all that often. (I think their last visit was in 2010, at Club Zoo.) You won't hear "Change," but you will hear Chino. He's definitely worth the price of admission.

Tickets for the all-ages show run $20 and are available through Ticketfly. Or you can enter to win a pair of tickets from us. Email your name to "pghmusicreport [at] gmail.com" and put "crosses" in the subject line. We'll announce a winner Friday.

The show starts at 7:30. Nostalghia and Death Valley High open.
