Milwaukee, Wisconsin's Cross Me formed in early 2013, bonding over a mutual love of classic and modern NYHC (The Icemen, Madball, Backtrack). They placed a thrashy, dynamic emphasis on the style with memorable riffs and fills and have developed it across several releases since, including their 2014 EP, Paid in Full and, more recently, the Mind Prison / Content flexi 7", both released on Flatspot Records.

The Midwest Blood standouts are currently writing a new EP and will head back into Howl Street Recordings with Shane Hochstetler (Expire, Enabler), who's recorded the band's past work, later this year to track it. Artwork will be handled by illustrator/designer Jesse Schaller (Suburban Scum, Discourse).

The band just made an appearance at this past weekend's Rain Fest and will be doing shows in the Midwest on the way home (dates below). They've previously been seen on the road with bands like Take Offense, Bent Life, and Homewrecker, and at fests like Heart Fest and Southeast Beast.
