Whilst giving a candid interview to Argentinian outlet Rock.com.ar, Deftones frontman Chino Moreno confirmed there are “six or seven songs, which are still mutating”, for what could potentially be the Sacramento outfit’s ninth studio album, and follow-up to 2016’s output, ‘Gore’.
An excerpt from the interview in question has been taken, and translated from Spanish to English by the good folk over at The PRP.
“There are six or seven songs, which are still mutating. They are very powerful, and I am anxious because, as I told you before, it has been a collaborative process. I think all our albums were postcards of what we were going through at each moment. Either with ‘Adrenaline’ (1995), we were boys, with ‘White Pony’, we had matured a little, with ‘Diamond Eyes’ (2010) or with which we are recording. Everyone has their own feeling, because it belongs to an era. Today we are older guys, I suppose, but we still enjoy making songs with marked riffs, cool melodies and a lot of groove. It is fun.
The band also shared a few photos taken of them recently being in the studio a few weeks ago, which we can now safely assume was them working on and putting together the aforementioned “six or seven songs” that would go towards their ninth record.
More details surrounding some future output from the band will be confirmed as it develops.
