New Deftones Album Recorded And Ready To Mix


Trailblazers in the world of melodic heavy music, Deftones have revealed they’ve got a new album headed our way in 2016. The yet-to-be-titled record will arrive after a four-year break from the studio following the release of Koi No Yokan in 2016. Back then the band took home the award for Album Of The Year at the 2013 Revolver Awards so expectations are high.

It sees the band regroup for their first recorded output since the tragic death of original bass player Chi Cheng in 2013, following complications from a car accident in 2008.

“It’s going to come out in the new year. We had some dates that were already kind of tentative,” said keyboardist Frank Delgado, talking on radio show The Morning Blaze.

“It’s being mixed now,” powerhouse drummer Abe Cunningham added. “It started being mixed a couple weeks back. They’re actually going tomorrow to go down and listen to mixes and do things. We’re mixing and we still are in the process of album title, artwork, song titles. We haven’t even got there yet, but the music’s done.”

Despite frontman Chino Moreno’s assertions that he’s been heavily influenced by the likes of Morrisey from The Smiths this time around, the band have promised album #8 will sonically continue their reign of low-tuned guitars and punishing riffage.
