Crosses -- the side project featuring Deftones frontman Chino Moreno, Far's Shaun Lopez, and Scott Chuck -- will be following up their debut EP with yet another short form release later this month.

Last August Crosses quietly surfaced with a free download of their debut EP '†††.' The five song collection went heavy on electronic elements, but also contained songs like 'Option' that were more akin to Moreno's melodic alt rock leanings heard on Deftones tracks like 'Sex Tape' and 'Beauty School' -- both of which appear on 2010's 'Diamond Eyes.'

The debut was just the first chunk of 16 completed songs the band plans to release via EP, they also contributed the track 'The Years' to the soundtrack for the popular 'Batman: Arkham City' video game. Now Crosses have dropped the unusual trailer for the next EP release '††' -- which will be available January 24th.  It has also been reported that Deftones have a new album planned for 2012, as does Moreno's other side project Team Sleep.

Despite earlier statements to the contrary, Crosses will make their live debut at a few dates scattered across the globe as well as the calender.
