Palms, the group featuring Deftones frontman Chino Moreno and ex-Isis members Jeff Caxide, Aaron Harris and Bryant Clifford Meyer, is coming for you.
Drummer Aaron Harris just revealed work is done on a new album in a post on his blog:
The Palms record is finished and I couldn’t be happier with both the experience of creating this album and how it turned out.
In early March, I met up with Deftones on the East Coast leg of their tour so that Chino and I could wrap up the remainder of his vocals. We turned hotel rooms and backstage areas into temporary recording studios, which you can see a bit of in the photo gallery above. It was also fun to travel with the Deftones guys and crew for a few days; thanks to them for making me feel welcome and for being such great people.
We’ve now officially handed the record off to the label. No more tweaking things. No more adding or subtracting. It’s nerve-wracking, but it’s also an enormous relief. Now I get to listen to it like a “regular person” instead of scrutinizing every part. The other day I listened to the whole record during a run and it was indescribably satisfying. I hope you guys enjoy the record as much as we enjoyed creating it. It comes out June, 25, 2013 on Ipecac Recordings.
So Palms have a website now and a release date of June 25th for their debut record, which Aaron Harris will be mixing. Just in case you're wondering what the hell they'll sound like, I've taken the liberty of embedding a song for you above. It's pretty cool, especially compared to what I thought it would be with both parties' heavier backgrounds; I assumed much heavier than this, but this is amazing. It's all the spaciness of Deftones and Isis in a different, unique way. I'm expecting big things from this record.
