Deftones Reveal Producer For New Album


Sans some vague comments made to the press thus far, we haven’t had a lot of details about the Deftones‘ forthcoming ninth studio album. A shot shared on the band’s social media earlier today, February 24th, seems to have changed that.

In a photograph taken by the band’s keyboardist/sampler Frank Delgado dated May 25th, 2019 (see below), the band can be seen working on new material at Los Angeles’ Henson Recording Studio with producer Terry Date (Pantera, Soundgarden) once again behind the boards. Moreno stated this past November that the band had recorded “an album’s worth of music” during the summer of 2019.

Date has produced some of the band’s more notable output over the years, including their platinum debut “Adrenaline“, their platinum sophomore album “Around The Fur“, their platinum third album “White Pony” and their gold-certified 2003 self-titled outing. If you missed it earlier today, a newly-published interview with the group’s drummer Abe Cunningham revealed that the group are planning to release the album during the second half of 2020.

With a big summer tour lined up with Gojira and Poppy, speculation is that the album should arrive sometime around then. The band’s touring plans include:
