Deftones Continue To Work On New Music


The Deftones have been taking their time working on new material for their ninth studio album with regular writing sessions having taken place at their Sacramento, CA rehearsal space ‘The Spot‘ over the course of the past few months. By the looks of the below photo shared by the band yesterday, April 12th, the writing process could be over—or at least nearing completion.

The below picture doesn’t appear to have been taken at the band’s aforementioned home studio and the drum kit appears to be mic’d up for recording, though the setup looks rather informal. As they’ve done in the past, the group used a hashtag of ‘#newmusic’ for the post.

The band’s vocalist/guitarist Chino Moreno spoke of where the band were headed with the record earlier this year, stating that it reminded him of the experimentalism of “White Pony“. You can read what he had to say here.
