Last April a new band was announced containing names that should have peaked some attention, but little fanfare was raised on purpose. Fronted by the Deftones’ Chino Moreno, Palms was kept under relative wraps while Deftones launched their latest album Koi No Yokan.
In addition to Moreno, the Los Angeles based quartet is comprised of former ISIS members Jeff Caxide, Aaron Harris and Clifford Meyer. Formed in 1997, ISIS was an award-winning experimental post-metal band, that disbanded in 2010 shortly after their final tour.
“Being a huge ISIS fan I’ve always dug the moods these dudes convey with their sound,” said Moreno. “I am excited to combine my sense of creativity with theirs, and to have fun doing so.”
Palms is set to release its self-titled debut album on June 25.
