Deftones recently unveiled the September 25 release date for their new album Ohms alongside the debut title track single. Now friend of the band DJ C-Minus has revealed in a Twitch stream that the next single will be called "Genesis" and it'll be real heavy.
"I've heard about 6 or 7 songs, Steph [Carpenter, guitarist] played me and it's fucking… The next single 'Genesis' is a fucking banger. Heavy. Screaming. Rad, all that."
Speaking of the title track, vocalist Chino Moreno recently said in an interview with NME that the single is a pretty accurate representation of the record.
"It sounds like we’re in peril when the song starts with a riff that’s all angular and dirty, then all of a sudden it lifts up with the chorus," he said. "That’s a good scope of where this record’s at, and as a Deftones’ song in general. That yin and ying of what we’ve always done of making very brutal music while having these lush overtones and undertones within it is what makes us who we are.
"We’ve never just been a metal band, we’ve never just been an alternative band, we’ve always just been us. We feel comfortable in never having to choose and let the songs unfold in an organic way."
Ohms was produced by Terry Date (Pantera, Soundgarden) and is available for pre-order here.
