DEFTONES Releasing New Album In September

April 28, 2015

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 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.”
