Chino Moreno Talks New Deftones Album, Palms & More

@deftonesband Deftones, etc. frontman Chino Moreno recently spoke to Billboard.com about the bands forthcoming new album and more. Speaking on their next studio album, which they are currently mixing, he stated:

“It’s not a super fast or slow record. It’s very dynamic. Some of my favorite things about Deftones are the dynamics. Yes, we’re a heavy band, but we’re not just in-your-face aggro the whole time, punching you in the face.

There’s a lot of aggression in some of the music, but there’s also this very soothing element where there’s a lot of soundscapes rather than attack, attack, attack the whole time. I understand that’s a big part of our sound, but I really feel like we reached a peak on our dynamics on this record with those two qualities — the beauty of something and just straight, ruthless aggression.”

The as-yet untitled effort is tentatively on course for an October 09th release date. Meanwhile, Moreno has revealed he is helping out Team Sleep‘s Todd Wilkinson on a new solo album. He will also soon begin tracking vocals for the six song debut EP from Palms. That group of course three former members of Isis.

On that front Moreno offered: “The music’s all been recorded and everything, and obviously I’ve been engulfed in the Deftones record. But I told them as soon as I was done, we would record the vocal stuff. He continued: “the songs are long as hell, so it’s like a full LP. I don’t know what it’ll be like or when it’s going to be done or released, but it’s a project I think is pretty rad.”
