Hot Cross

A seething mass of hardcore energy and screamo vocals, Philadelphia's Hot Cross are a fortuitous collision of talent from a handful of noteworthy punk bands, including members of Saetia, Southpaw, Joshua Fit for Battle, You and I, and Off Minor, though the group's music has managed to avoid the pitfalls of the "side project syndrome" and evolved into an exciting and challenging entity all its own. Hot Cross came together in 2000, when percussionist Greg Drudy (ex-Saetia and Southpaw), guitarist Matt Smith (formerly of Off Minor, and a member of She's Hit! with Drudy), and singer and guitarist Adam Marino (from Saetia and Errortype: 11) decided to join forces and form a new band devoted to fast, loud, and lean punk rock.

Needing a bass player, the new band invited their friend Josh Jakubowski (ex-Joshua Fit for Battle) to join, but soon afterwards Marino dropped out, citing the demanding time commitments of Errortype: 11. After a few practices as a three-piece, Casey Boland (formerly of You and I) came aboard as a second guitarist, and Hot Cross began working up material in earnest. After completing a set of songs, Hot Cross decided they needed a stronger singer, and Billy Werner, another veteran of Saetia and She's Hit!, was sent a copy of the band's demo while he was studying overseas. Upon returning, Werner jumped into the group head first, and played his first gig with Hot Cross less than a week after returning to the United States.

After contributing to a couple of compilations, the band released its first EP, A New Set of Lungs, in early 2003, followed a few months later by a split single with Light the Fuse and Run. By the end of the year, Hot Cross had released their first full-length album, Cryonics, though the independent Level Plane label. Smith and Jakubowski traded places on bass and guitar for the band's second album, 2004's Fair Trades and Farewells, but after nearly six months of touring following the record's release, Jakubowski left the band to pursue a career as a recording engineer. Jakubowski's departure was amicable, and the band (continuing on as a quartet) approached him to record its third album, Risk Revival, which was released by Equal Vision Records in February 2007. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

why do I always find out about bands after they break up? I had been listening to saetia for a while and then I find these guys just a couple of years later...
Went to see Hot Cross and Fear Before.. In Philadelphia , they broke up for good the night of that show, pre paid for my ticket and was too pissed to stay even to see Fear Before.. JUST WANTED TO SEE HOT CROSS!! Why?!?
Saw this band in the dive bar earl s 2 in odessa so long ago .
S**t I just realized XD that is the vocals from Saetia! No wonder I digged these guys
i liked Saetia better, but HC fills in the gaps nicely
Billy Werner's voice is the best!
if you like these guys you should check out the band La Dispute
they remind me of a heavier fall of troy
i want to have sex with hot cross!
they rock so hard my anus gets a little wet.
I wholehearted l y agree with you mzmtb. This band has been one of my faves for years... something beautiful out of the tragedy of Saetia's demise.
i love these guys, theyre exactly the evolution of posthardcore music ive been lookin for
Awesome band.

I need a new set of lungs. No... literally.
