Chino Moreno Reveals New Deftones Album Release Date, European Tour Set For November


Deftones frontman Chino Moreno guested on the ‘Rock Show With Daniel P Carter‘ and revealed the tentative release date (in his own words) for the bands new studio album to be September 25th. Speaking on the bands current progress with the effort, Moreno said he’s currently finishing up the vocals for it:

“The record as far as music has been all recorded and I am currently working on the vocals. I’ve been recording from my home studio here in Oregon. Slowly but surely getting it done. It’s coming out really good, it’s another Deftones record, I feel like us reaching a little bit, getting more into… The song structures, trying to challenge ourselves a little bit you know what I mean? It’s sounding good, I think it’s gonna be a great record.”

Moreno also spoke about their upcoming full album performance of “Around The Fur“, which will take place at this years ‘Amnesia Rockfest‘ in Montebello, QC:

“One of these festivals we’re doing “Around The Fur” in its entirety, which should be fun. It might be a little bit of a challenge, cause there’s some songs on that record that we haven’t played for years. We’ve yet to really rehearse for that. That was before I started playing guitar too so, it’s just like all I gotta do is go out there and sing for like 45 minutes. It should be pretty easy, but who’s to say.”

The Deftones have also newly announced that they will be playing some select dates in Europe and the UK in November as well:

11/15 Paris, FRA – Bataclan
11/18 Berlin, GER – Columbiahalle
11/19 Cologne, GER – Koln Palladium
11/21 London, UK – The SSE Arena Wembley

Their summer plans will see them on tour in North America with Incubus and more as part of this trek.
