Black Cross have announced plans to release a new record on Auxilliary Records in late July. The band had the following to say about it:

: We have been slowly but surely mixing the Black Cross recordings and are now about to put the disc into production. The title of the album is SEVERANCE PAYS and it features 11 tracks of stripped-down Wipers and Dischord inspired punk rock songs. Artist Bill Widener, known for his incredible Laughing Hyenas cover art, wil be providing the front and back cover artwork, which is a dream come true for us. We hope to have the CD out in late July and will hopefully play some shows in the midwest around that time.

The band's last output was 2004's b-sides compilation Widows Bloody Widows.
