Deftones Start Recording Eighth Studio Album
Rolling Stone caught up with Deftones frontman Chino Moreno at the recent Soundwave Festival. Moreno then went onto reveal some news that will please fans: The band is putting together their eighth studio album.
Moreno, however, explains that he isn’t yet involved in the recording process. Instead, the organic approach has them in the studio. He said: "The other guys started last week – I'm excited to hear what they've done so far."
But when the interview shifted to the typical question – how do you plan to define its sound? – Moreno explained they haven’t decided on anything yet. He said: "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. I think that's the best, organic way to write music. It's worked for us over the years."
The new, still-untitled album is the Deftones’ first without Chi Cheng, who passed away as the result of a car accident in 2008. The release follows 2012’s Koi No Yokan, which peaked at No. 11 on the Billboard 200 and No. 5 on the Alternative Albums chart.
