The Deftones have finally begun prep on their new record,and have provided a slight update on the process. This will actually be their first release since Chi Cheng’s death. The alternative metal band from Sacramento received favorable reviews on their 2012 effort ” Koi No Yokan,” and appear ready to take the next step forward in finishing the album.
Chino Moreno will be traveling from Oregan where he now lives and, heading to Los Angeles where the rest of the band has just finished the album’s drum tracks. He exlaimed “The songs are amazing, and we wrote them in a really cool way.” “It definitely feels like we’ve taken a step from our last record,” he continues. “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.”
Moreno said that the record could come out as early as “September or October.” Check out the full story, and more on the band courtesy of Rolling Stone here.
