Cross Dog Go the Distance on Latest Release

Cross Dog is a noisy, experimental, bass-driven hardcore punk band from Peterborough, Ontario. Their music is played at ear-splitting volumes, but the band’s socially conscious messaging cuts through the noise loud and clear. Formed in 2013, the intentional omission of a guitarist from the lineup leaves Cross Dog lacking absolutely nothing. Affirming the power in the rule of three, Tracy A (vocals), Mark Rand (bass), and Mikey Reid (drums) explode with a multiplicative force that betrays the finite bounds of their instrumental limitations. 


Cross Dog’s newest album (and first for Stomp Records), All Hard Feelings (out June 7th), sees the band maintain the sonic onslaught they’ve become known for, but with a few tweaks. “Hard Feelings,” the first single to be shared ahead of the LP’s launch, is a pseudo-diss track that stemmed from Tracy feeling blindsided and betrayed. It encapsulates the moment when you are all pure and reactive emotion before you calm down and view your current situation through a healthier, more balanced lens. It’s the perfect “scream-it-in-your-car” song, so you don’t end up screaming it in someone else’s face.


From basements to festival stages, Cross Dog have viciously banged their heads alongside an eclectic bunch of legends like The Misfits, Metz, Preoccupations, Cancer Bats, Good Riddance, War on Women, Fucked Up, Dayglo Abortions, Single Mothers, and many more.
