As you read these words, it’s very likely the Deftones are somewhere in California, working out new songs for the band’s next album.
This is what Deftones and Crosses singer Chino Moreno confirmed during a recent stop in Australia.
“I haven’t personally started [writing new songs], but the other guys started last week, actually,” Moreno tells Soundwave TV.
“So I’m excited to hear what they’ve done so far,” he said. “I’m gonna check in with them next week.”
“When we make records, we don’t plan on what kind of record we’re gonna make; we never have. It’s, like, we react to each other; one guy starts playing something and then the other guy reacts to it and the other guys reacts to it, and then, next thing we know, we have a song. I always think that’s the best, organic way to write music, because you’re not actually thinking about… Like, we don’t have a game plan as far as what kind of record or what it’s supposed to sound like. As long as it’s good, as long as we’re happy and feeling it, what we’re doing, it’s worked for us over the years.”
Today, the band released pictures from the studio, showing them at work.
