TAU CROSSInternational/ punk metal super-group, Tau Cross, have announced they are to release their debut album through Relapse Records this spring.

The band which features Rob “The Baron” Miller (Amebix) handling vocal and bass duties, Voivod drummer Michel “Away” Langevin, Misery guitarist Jon Misery and War//Plague guitarist Andy Lefton, first formed in 2013 and spent several months in 2014 putting together their first studio full-length. A collaboration that saw their combined efforts span three different countries.

Commenting on the band’s musical direction, Rob “The Baron” Miller had this to say:

“The music that evolved over this time is difficult to categorize, as there is clearly a lot of Amebix in the songwriting as well as some elements of Gothic, Joy Division, Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, Industrial and hard fucking old-school punk rock. This is an entirely original work that is the organic fusion of four unique people.

We decided to let the songs form themselves around the original demos and allow people to bring themselves into the mix, to allow the bark to grow around the tree. We are all very proud of what we have achieved in this short time and looking forward to working together again as soon as time allows.”

Miller also went on to add that Tau Cross will be touring later in the year, commenting;

“Tau Cross will be playing live over the coming year, we hope to Tour in the U.S and Europe, it is still early days but I feel this is going to be an intense live experience.”

Upon the band’s signing to Relapse Records, “The Baron” added:

“We were introduced to Relapse through a mutual friend, Brad Boatright at Audioseige Mastering, and were delighted that they stepped up and took this under their wing straight away, we look forward to working with them in the future.”
