Secret Chiefs 3

Vancouver, BC, V6Z 1L2
This event is all ages
Dead Cross emerged out of a series of impractical schemes, fallen-through plans, and last-minute musical experimentation. Shows were scheduled before a single song was written, fans were formed before even one show was played. The chaos of its creation seems apt; after all, the band is comprised entirely of artists who have thrived playing tightly-coiled turmoil—intelligent dissonance disguised as disorder.
Consisting of Dave Lombardo, Justin Pearson, Michael Crain, and Mike Patton, the impressive, expansive, and eclectic list of prior bands collectively played in would be enough to ensure the unyielding ferocity of the music... but a resume isn’t necessary, here. Dead Cross stands on its own, speaks volumes with its multilayered evil-genius vocals, manic guitar riffs, and brutal rhythms.
Secret Chiefs 3
Secret Chiefs 3 is a Trey Spruance project that blends everything from Bollywood Funk and traditional Middle Eastern sounds to Death Metal and Drum n Bass. Trey has worked with other Mr. Bungle members Danny Heifetz and Trevor Dunn as well as William Winant and Eyvind Kang just to name a few.
With the release of "Book Of Horizons" Secret Chiefs 3 has revealed that they are the general name for seven different bands, each representing a different aspect of Spruance's musical and philosophical interests. The seven bands are The Electromagnetic Azoth, UR, Ishraqiyun, Traditionalists, Holy Vehm, FORMS, and most likely Noddingturd Fan (NT Fan).
