Deftones' Stephen Carpenter

Stephen Carpenter Talks Writing New Deftones Material & His Love Of Meshuggah


Deftones guitarist Stephen Carpenter appeared in an recently uploaded interview with TC Electronic. In it, he was asked if the band have any plans for writing the follow-up to their 2016 release “Gore“, to which he replied:

“Yeah we’ll be in the studio at some point, there’s no window that we have blotted out on the calendar or anything like that right now. [We’re] Just playing, just noodlin’ around, just goofin’ around trying to let things come in.”

The clip also finds him discussing how his admiration for Meshuggah made him a convert into seven-string guitars and eight-string guitars.
