Deftones have posted a tease of a new track titled “Gore” via their official website as well as revealing tour dates for a short tour that will take place this March. While only six dates have been revealed (all taking place in the Southwest of the States), there is a lot of room in between the confirmed appearances to expand the tour.
Vocalist Chino Moreno spoke about the sound of the new album in an interview with BBC Radio 1’s “Rock Show” last Spring, saying:
I think it’s a little more of a heady record. I feel like we’ve gone into the songs and really dissected them. If something sounded a little straight, we took a left turn and made things a little screwy. We just tried something completely opposite, not to sabotage it, but to challenge ourselves and try new things that we haven’t done in the past.
“It definitely feels like we’ve taken a step from our last record. But it’s definitely a DEFTONES record, and it has all the elements that make us who we are. We’re not going out there to change anything, other than just thinking outside the box.
This new album, which will come out April 8th, will be the followup to 2012’s excellent Koi No Yokan.
