The Deftones have now set an April 27th release date for their as-yet untitled new album. The effort was recorded with producer Nick Raskulinecz (Trivium, Shadows Fall) and features bass tracks done by Sergio Vega, the current replacement for ailing bassist Chi Cheng. Cheng has been sidelined by a car accident that took place in November of 2008.
In a new interview with Noisecreep, band frontman Chino Moreno described the album as reminiscent of “Around The Fur” and “White Pony“. He also mentioned that the band plan to begin touring in support of it in February.
Other topics addressed in the interview include the condition of Cheng, and the recent benefit concerts thrown for him, plus the current state of the bands shelved album “Eros“, and more. You can check all that out at the aforementioned link.
