Deftones to release new album ‘Gore’ in April

January 28, 2016

Deftones confirmed their new album is called ‘Gore’ and will be released in April 8.


Singer Chino Moreno says the band recorded sixteen songs for the follow up to 2012’s ‘Koi No Yakan’. The record was produced by Matt Hyde and features a guest appearance by Jerry Cantrell from Alice In Chains.

Moreno previously described the new album’s sound as “out of the box” to NME, adding that it’s “full of keyboards and a lot of cool, spacey low frequencies” as well as “organic jams”.

Moreno also said former Smiths frontman Morrissey was a surprise influence on the record. “I’ve been on this crazy Morrissey kick recently – totally obsessing over his solo records – so I brought a lot of that to the table,” Moreno said. “On those early solo records, he uses this awesome, Elvis-y delay on his vocal that I’ve been ripping off a ton. He’s always been a favourite lyricist of mine – the beautiful poetic melancholy of it all.”
