Chino Moreno Reveals Release Date for New Deftones Album
Deftones have been working on a new album, and now more details are being revealed about when it will likely be released. In an interview with BBC Radio's Daniel P. Carter (below), frontman Chino Moreno announced that their new album has a tentative release date of Sept. 25.
In the interview with Carter, Moreno elaborated a bit about the album, saying, “The record as far as music has been all recorded and I'm currently working on the vocals. I’ve been recording from my home studio here in Oregon. Slowly but surely getting it done, man. It’s coming out really good, it’s just another Deftones record, and I feel like us reaching a little bit, getting more into the song structures, and just 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.”
In an interview last month, Moreno talked about the songwriting process for the album, saying, “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.”
Deftones have a lot of live shows coming up this year, including a summer co-headlining tour with Incubus that kicks off July 22 in Clarkson, Mich. The band will also will be playing their 1997 album Around the Fur in its entirety at the Amnesia Rockfest in Quebec in June. For all their dates, including a newly announced European tour, go here.
