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.
