New Deftones Album Release Date + Teaser

Sacramento-based Deftones are finally coming out with a new album, titled Diamond Eyes, on April 27th. This is their first release since 2006’s very good Saturday Night Wrist; they finished recording Eros in 2008, but decided to shelve it. (Apparently this had nothing to do with the fact that bassist Chi Cheng has been in a coma since November 2008. More on that here.) Check out a 30-second sample of lead single “Rocket Skates” at their site.

The Meshuggah influence can be felt a bit here, I think–guitarist Stephen Carpenter has listed them as his favorite band.

  1. I am so pumped for Diamond Eyes. “Rocket Skates” is an awesome track and I bet the rest of the songs will be even better.


  1. No trackbacks yet.
