With the release of Deftones‘ ninth album ‘Ohms’ out of the way, frontman Chino Moreno has shared that he’s now focusing on one of his side-projects, Crosses (†††).
The project – which is completed by Shaun Lopez (ex-Far) and Chuck Doom – has been more or less inactive since the release of their self-titled debut album in 2014, though the trio have worked on new material on and off since.
In an interview on Bloody Disgusting‘s The Boo Crew podcast, Moreno has shared that he’s now working on that unreleased material having not long moved into his new home where has set up a studio room.
“A few days ago, I just moved into a new place a little over a month ago, so I’ve been setting up my studio room in here and I broke out some of that [unreleased] stuff from then, and I started working on it! Now that the Deftones record is done and there’s no touring really in the near future, I kinda have time to work on stuff so I’m definitely going to dig in and see where I can go with that.
I really, really like that project. The best part about it for me was no one knew we were making that record even. We put it out as EPs first and we just kinda dropped out of nowhere. Making music without any expectations was super freeing and fun. I really love doing it. I like the guys that I work with in that so I’m gonna try to get some of that stuff finalized… finished up.”
More details surrounding future activity and output from Crosses (†††) will be confirmed as they develop.
