Deftones has a new album coming and we’ve known about it for a really long time, but we haven’t seen any solid info about until now because it was delayed not once but twice in the course of the past 6 months. After many months of waiting, guitarist Stephen Carpenter was able to give us an actual release date for the record, possibly called Gore.
Now, it’s time for frontman Chino Moreno to give us more details about the record, particularly on the reasons why it was pushed back so many times from its original release date. During an interview with Carlota from KOMP 92.3 back in October, Moreno explained a little bit about the reasons the album wasn’t ready last year. He said:
“The guy [Matt Hyde] who started—who recorded the record with us—had mixed it, but at the time, we had finished the record and then we went and started doing some shows. So we weren’t around while it was being mixed.
So, when we got off tour we listened to it and went ‘ahh, let’s try something else’—so we tried someone else, who was great, but didn’t record the record. So there was a lot of the nuance and things from the recording that were missing. So we ended up going back with Matt Hyde, who initially recorded the record.”
Check out the rest of the interview below but everything boils down to what was originally reported about delays on the production side of the album. At least we can be happy to finally be able to mark our calendars for April 8th to get our hands on it.
