Mike Crain of Dead Cross, Retox, and more recently Cunts is sadly battling cancer, but fortunately that's not stopping him from making new music. He's got his first-ever solo EP, which is self-titled, coming March 13 via his own Radical Guy Recordings, and we're premiering the EP's first single "Wait, what?" and its Bryan Hamiltonp-directed video. Compared to the heavier bands Mike plays in, this song finds him channelling gothy singer/songwriter stuff in the vein of Nick Cave, Swans, or Mark Lanegan, and if you dig that kinda stuff, you're probably gonna dig this too. Watch/listen below.

Mike also has tour dates TBA, and his live band will be Matt Cronk (bass), Paul Christenson (drums, percussion), Miguel Gardo (synth), and Patrick Brophy (guitar). Stay tuned.
