Deftones’ Chino Moreno Has Begun To Revisit Unfinished Material From Crosses: “I’m Gonna Try To Get Some Of That Stuff Finalized”


Deftones frontman Chino Moreno recently stated that he was looking to get back into side projects after having been relatively quiet on that front for a period of several years following his move to Oregon. It seems one of those projects he hopes to revisit is Crosses (†††), his side project with Shaun Lopez of ex-Far, etc. fame and Chuck Doom.

That outfit had been working on new material several years back with a handful of songs having come together at the time. Speaking recently of his hopes to return to that project with Bloody Disgusting‘s ‘The Boo Crew‘, Moreno revealed he’s begun to revisit what they had worked on. He commented:

“A few days ago, I just moved into a new place a little over a month ago, so I’ve been setting up my studio room in here and I broke out some of that [unreleased] stuff from then, and I started working on it! Now that the Deftones record is done and there’s no touring really in the near future, I kinda have time to work on stuff so I’m definitely going to dig in and see where I can go with that.

I really really like that project. The best part about it for me was no one knew we were making that record even. We put it out as EP’s first and we just kinda dropped out of nowhere. Making music without any expectations was super freeing and fun. I really love doing it. I like the guys that I work with in that so I’m gonna try to get some of that stuff finalized… finished up.”
