Alejandro Escovedo's scorching and cinematic The Crossing follows the story of two young immigrants, one from Mexico and one from Italy, as they come to the U.S. to pursue the American dream and search out their punk rock idols. Not only is it Alejandro's first album with Yep Roc it's his first recorded in Europe. He co-wrote and performed it with Italian band Don Antonio from Mogdilana led by guitarist and composer Antonio Gramentieri who has a rich musical history of his own in Italy with his cult band Sacri Cuori. The album was recorded in a month in Villafranca, Italy with Brian Deck co-producing.

The Crossing also features a host of guest musicians, including The Stooges' James Williamson on "Teenage Luggage" and Wayne Kramer from the MC5 on "Sonica USA" (both bands are also name-checked in the album's lyrics). "Waiting For Me" features Peter Perrett and John Perry from The Only Ones, recording together for the first time since 1980. Joe Ely appears on his own track, "Silver City." "Rio Navidad," a spoken word song about a Texas ranger, was written by novelist and Richmond Fontaine/The Delines' bandleader Willy Vlautin and read by his bandmate Freddy Trujillo.
