Deftones have announced their 7th studio album, mysteriously titled Koi No Yokan will hit fans’ iPods on November 13th. It turns out the Japanese phrase refers to a “premonition of love” or the feeling that one gets after just meeting someone, knowing that love is inevitable.
Chino Moreno so often perfectly juxtaposes his lyrics of love with the thick, slow, heavy chords of the band’s signature metal riffs.
Talking about how the band’s heavy guitars meet his often sensual lyrics, Moreno tells EW. “There’s also this lush beauty that flows within everything that we do, and that’s my favorite part of the band. To me, it’s the epitome of what the Deftones do.”
The band’s fall headlining tour will feature fellow Californians, Scars On Broadway. The first stop of the tour is slated for the Epicenter Festival in Irvine, CA, which featues a lineup including Stone Temple Pilots, Bush, Chevelle, Hollywood Undead, Escape The Fate, Dead Sara, Crash Kings and more.
Presale tickets will be available Tuesday, 9/4/12 at 12pm PT via Ticketmaster.
