In a recent interview, Deftones frontman Chino Moreno revealed that the band has pushed back the release date of their as-yet-untitled new album to November from the previously announced September. He explains:
“I think October or November now, probably November, as of today we are rushing to get our thank you’s our credits and all that stuff turned in. Once the music turned in which should be hopefully in the next couple of weeks there is still some mixing and mastering to be done. But the recordings all done the songs are all there, they are awesome we’re excited about it. We’re just dealing with the stuff now, putting all the artwork and everything together. And then a few months for them—the powers that be—to prepare it to be released.”
Deftones last released Koi No Yokan in November 2012 on Reprise Records. Last year, they released a previously-unreleased song called “Smile“, which was recorded before the death of their original bassist Chi Cheng, who has since been replaced by Sergio Vega from Quicksand. The Deftones have also been in talks of releasing their “lost” album Eros, but no release date has been set.
