Deftones Unveil Lyric Video for ‘Tempest’
The band has also launched a pre-order bundle for ‘Koi No Yokan’ that includes the album on CD, a digital copy of the album, a download of ‘Tempest,’ a ‘Koi No Yokan’ album cover t-shirt and a 24 inch by 24 inch lithograph. 100 randomly selected fans will have their lithograph signed by the band. The package is available via deftones.com for $39.99.
Singer Chino Moreno talked about how the dynamics will play out on their new album in a recent interview. He told NME, “It’s not a super fast or slow record. It’s very dynamic. Some of my favorite things about Deftones are the dynamics. Yes, we’re a heavy band, but we’re not just in-your-face aggro the whole time, punching you in the face. There’s a lot of aggression in some of the music, but there’s also this very soothing element where there’s a lot of soundscapes rather than attack, attack, attack the whole time.”
Deftones are in the midst of a headlining tour with Scars on Broadway that wraps up Oct. 30 in New York. They’ll play some dates in Mexico and South America before returning to the U.S. to pick up the tour again Nov. 14. Last week at the San Francisco show the band invited bassist Chi Cheng’s son Gabe onstage to play the song ‘Root’ with them. Chi has been mostly in a coma since a 2008 car accident.
