Team Sleep, which features Deftones vocalist Chino Moreno, will be entering the studio to record their long-awaited sophomore album with a tentative early 2015 release date planned. The band will be partially funding the new album with an incentive package that fans can purchase at BrownPaperTickers. Backers will receive such perks as silk-screened prints, a limited edition hoodie, a limited vinyl, a CD with previously unreleased recordings, and more.
The band released a statement saying:
Please join us as we create our next record in Woodstock, New York. We’ll gather at Applehead studio, near the base of the Catskill mountains to eat, write, play and record.
For a long time, business people, logistics, careers, adulthood, families and the House Republicans have thwarted us, but we’ve continued to make music. At the same time, the creative process has become increasingly fragmented and dehumanized. With that in mind, we’re very excited to get together with our dear friends, hang out, play music and have a unique experience in a beautiful place.
We’d like you to be there, too. Your participation will be essential to the independent creation and release of the live performance and our forthcoming studio record; we look forward to seeing you.
The band’s first release came out in 2005.
