Punk Band, Cross Dog, Cuts Through the Noise with Politically-Charged Song, “Jane Roe”

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. 

Their second release from their upcoming LP is the politically-charged “Jane Roe.” The moniker of “Jane Roe” is used here to represent every single person who is forced to fight for their reproductive rights and access to abortions — a fight that is taking place not only in the US, but here in Canada despite its legal status since 1988.

“I wrote this song as someone who has been saved by this choice; as someone who has witnessed what happens to unwanted or underserved children in our society; as someone who believes that forced birth is morally wrong,” says lead vocalist Tracy A. “It is intended to be an anthem of solidarity, strength, and empowerment.”
