DEFTONES: IN STUDIO WITH BLACK SABBATH’S BILL WARD
Deftones spent much of 2014 touring and waiting for creative inspiration to get them back to the studio. According to Loudwire.com, fans will soon be able to get their hands on some new material.
They are officially back in the studio writing again and Black Sabbath’s drummer, Bill Ward is in studio. The band posted a photo with Ward, but it’s unclear if he was just stopping by, or if a more formal collaboration is in the works.
The new disc, still unnamed, should be out in 2015. It follows-up to 2012’s album Koi No Yokan.
In April, Deftones posted a previously unreleased song called “Smile” online to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the death of the band’s original bassist, Chi Cheng. The track is taken from Eros, the album that the group was recording when Cheng was gravely injured in a November 2008 auto accident.
- Cheng was left in a semi-comatose state — from which he never fully woke up — and the recordings were shelved.
