First Album in Three Years

The Deftones release their new album, entitled simply ‘Deftones’, on May 19th via Maverick. ‘Deftones’ is the follow-up to 2000s Grammy Award winner and Kerrang! album of the year ‘White Pony.’

Produced by Terry Date (Limp Bizkit, Soundgarden), work on ‘Deftones’ came naturally to the band, having gravitated back to their own studio The Spot soon after completing a world tour.

“We couldn’t sit still,” asserts guitarist Stephen Carpenter, on the genesis of ‘Deftones.’ “We had built up a lot of creative steam on the road and were hitting on all cylinders. You can’t just turn that off. We tried relaxing and living like regular civilians but it wasn’t happening. We’d forgotten how.”

The result is perhaps the most fully realised Deftones album to date. As well as the dense atmospherics of the first single ‘Minerva’ (out May 12th), other highlights include the vicious sonic assault of ‘Hexagram’, the ambient ‘Lucky You’ and the crushing power of ‘Bloody Cape.’

Deftones first introduced themselves to the world with their 1995 debut album ‘Adrenalin’, but it was the release of 1997’s ‘Around The Fur’ that confirmed their status as one of rock’s most exciting acts. With 2000’s massive selling album ‘White Pony’, Deftones achieved mainstream recognition, assisted by the hit single ‘Change (In The House Of Flies).’

Deftones are set to play the main-stage at the Download Festival on May 31st.
