Cross Dog are 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 upcoming full length All Hard Feelings, their first for Stomp Records, is due out on June 7th and sees the band maintain the sonic onslaught they’ve become known for, but with a few tweaks. Hard Feelings is the first single to be shared ahead of the album’s launch, it’s 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!
