Crossfaith stream Xeno EP

Crossfaith have released a five-track digital EP to tie in with their European tour.

The run of dates start next month with support from The Qemists, The One Hundred and Counting Days. And all three bands appear on the EP, along with previously unreleased Crossfaith track Dance With The Enemy and their recent collaboration with Skindred’s Benji Webbe. Hear it below.

Crossfaith frontman Kenta Koie says: “The Xeno world tour is about to kick off in Europe and the UK and we’re bringing some sick bands with us, so we thought we’d give you all some tunes.

“Our boys The Qemists are one of our favourite bands to listen to, and we’ve all been big fans of The One Hundred since we first heard them. And Counting Days are the best heavy band around right now, so this tour EP is going to blow your mind.”

The Japanese outfit released latest album Xeno last year.
