Earlier this week, we got really excited when Deftones frontman Chino Moreno told a Chilean website that his band is all done writing new material and plan to enter the studio in July. Turns out something got lost in translation and the band is entering the studio much sooner than expected.
In a newer interview with Argentinan radio station Vorterix Rock 103.1 (seen above), Moreno revealed they could be hitting the studio as soon as next week and are planning to put out the record in September/October. Here is the direct quote from around the 3:35 mark:
“We start recording next week… Right before I came last week, we finished all the writing. So next week, when I get back, we start recording and we should have a record that comes out… October, maybe September.”
This is great news. As I mentioned in a previous post, I was a big fan of Diamond Eyes, so if the band can keep that momentum going, I am fully onboard. [via Metal Insider]
