Deftones frontman Chino Moreno has told Artisan News (see below) that their shelved 2008 album “Eros” is closer to seeing the light of day than it has been in recent years. The band put the album on hold a number of months after the recording sessions began for it when their then bassist Chi Cheng was seriously injured in a car accident.
With Cheng having passed away this past April after years in a semi-comatose state, it would seem the band are more receptive to sharing his final studio output with the public. When asked if the album will ever come out at the recent ‘Golden Gods Awards‘, Moreno said:
“It will, I think more so now probably than ever. I actually went back and listened to some of it recently and… you know, I don’t know, when or, you know… but I feel it’s a little more appropriate now for us to think about that as to, you know, in the last few years to think about.”
