Dillinger Escape Plan Guitarist Working With Juliette Lewis

The Deftones Return To The Studio


The Deftones are one of my favorite bands. I haven’t hated a single note of theirs. In fact, I think the band’s output has been flawless — it’s matured with the Deftones, and evolved with time, but it’s always been bad-ass. The Deftones have been writing material as of late for their next album, which […]
