Deftones fans, rejoice! Chino Moreno, the band’s frontman, recently hinted at the nearing completion of their upcoming album. In a recent interview with KROQ during Coachella, Moreno disclosed that the band has already recorded all the musical tracks for the album, with his current focus being on finalizing the vocals.

While hesitant to commit to a specific release date, Moreno emphasized the band’s dedication to delivering excellence rather than rushing the process. He expressed confidence in the album’s quality, affirming that it’s “really good” and worth the wait.

One intriguing aspect Moreno hinted at is the band’s exploration of a more “invigorated” sound. This shift promises an exciting evolution for Deftones, especially considering their last studio endeavor predates the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Reflecting on the creative process, Moreno highlighted the joy of being in a band during the creative phases. Despite maintaining an active presence through live performances, the band relished the return to the studio for what Moreno describes as the “funnest part” of their musical journey.

Deftones recently graced the stage at Coachella, treating fans to a memorable performance that included a captivating rendition of The Smiths’ classic, “Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want.”
