DEFTONES Releasing New Album In September
During appearance on BBC Radio 1’s “Rock Show” with Daniel P. Carter (April 25), Deftones singer Chino Moreno updated the band’s follow-up to 2012’s “Koi No Yokan”, which is tentatively scheduled for release on September 25.
“The record, as far as music, has been all recorded, and I am currently working on the vocals,” he said. “So I’ve been recording from my home studio here in Oregon. Slowly but surely, [we’re] getting it done, man. It’s coming out really good. It’s just another Deftones record. And I feel like it’s us reaching a little bit, getting more into the song structures and trying to challenge ourselves a little bit, you know what I mean? It’s sounding good. I think it’s gonna be a great record.”
Chino recently told RollingStone.com about the Deftones’ next CD: “The songs are amazing, and we wrote them in a really cool way. We had all of us in a room together with one person expressing an idea and another person jumping on it. The songs are really built as a collective. We have five guys who have almost completely different takes on music, so when it works, it works great.”
“It definitely feels like we’ve taken a step from our last record,” he continued. “But it’s definitely a Deftones record, and it has all the elements that make us who we are. We’re not going out there to change anything, other than just thinking outside the box.”
