Deftones name new LP

Releases

Deftones

Deftones have just disclosed notes on their new LP, as is entitled ‘Koi No Yokan’ (Japanese for “lost in translation”). Recorded in LA with producer Nick Raskulinecz, the man also responsible for the quintet’s 2010 long player ‘Diamond Eyes’, it’s set for release on 12 Nov.

Frontman Chino Moreno defines the duality of Deftones’ sound to date: “Obviously we’re an aggressive band – not the heaviest, but there’s a lot of attack. But there’s also this lush beauty that flows within everything that we do, and that’s my favourite part of the band. To me, it’s the epitome of what the Deftones do”.

Chino and co will pay respect to this, their seventh studio set, via a headline tour of the United States in October. And, who knows, maybe a British one too.
