Deftones Might Release ‘Eros’, The Last Album With Chi Cheng

deftonesbanner2012

In an interview with KROQ, Deftones singer Chino Moreno has raised the possibility that the band might release Eros, the 2008 album that was being recorded when bassist Chi Cheng got into a car accident and fell into a coma. Since Cheng was part of the creative process, the band collectively decided to put the album aside when bassist Sergio Vega came aboard.

Moreno explains about Eros, “…I think that record really captured that time in our lives and I don’t think we’re ready to look back at that time just yet. It’s really still fresh, like a fresh wound in a way, so it’s like one day we’ll release it but right now it’s one of the most personal things that we still deal with everyday so to kind of go there at this point when we feel like we’re really trudging forward doesn’t feel right.

So, nothing is certain or concrete but there are hopes that we one day can hear Cheng’s contributions. Meanwhile, the band will be releasing their latest album Koi No Yokan on Nov. 13th. You can hear the current single “Leathers” below.

Koi No Yokan track list:
1. Poltergeist
2. Romantic Dreams
3. Leathers
4. Swerve City
5. Entombed
6. Graphic Nature
7. Tempest
8. Gauze
9. Rosemary
10. Goon Squad
11. What Happened To You?

    Good news here I guess. So what happened to to Chi Cheng? Did he survive the coma?

    • JonathanBarkan

      He survived, went through a ton at the hospital, and is now receiving care at his home. He’s made vast improvements but still has a great deal of recovery ahead of him.

    Ok good! Thanks for the update! I havent heard any new music from the deftones in over 10 years! Not since White Pony anyway. I dont do My space or facebook very often.

    You should totally check out their last album Diamond Eyes. It’s amazing.

    Thanks for these Deftones updates! They’re my fave band, so it’s cool to get my horror and Deftones news at the same place :)

    Nothing new really, he pretty much said the same thing while doing press for Diamond Eyes. I’m confident it’ll get released in some form, but definitely not while the band is this active and writing/recording more.
