Deftones Have Started Work on New Album, Says Chino Moreno
By Brian Ives
Chino Moreno is currently on tour with his latest project, ††† (Crosses), but Deftones fans will be glad to know that his main band is still very much a concern. In fact, the other Deftones members have started working on a new album while Moreno is on the road.
While at the Soundwave Festival in Melbourne, Australia, Moreno was asked about the next Deftones album, and he said, “The other guys started last week – I’m excited to hear what they’ve done so far.”
Asked what the album would sound like, he replied, “We don’t plan on what kind of record we’re going to make. We react to each other – one guy starts playing something then the other guy reacts to it, and the other guys react to that. Next thing we know, we have a song.”
The album will be their first since the death of longtime bassist Chi Cheng, who was involved in a fatal car accident in 2008 and taken off life support last year.
