One year ago today (April 13), Deftones said goodbye to bassist Chi Cheng, who passed away after a 2008 car accident left him mostly in a coma for four and a half years. On the one year anniversary of his passing, frontman Chino Moreno has posted the unreleased song 'Smile' from Deftones' shelved album 'Eros.'
After releasing two EPs, ††† (Crosses) will unleash their self-titled full-length debut Feb. 11 via Sumerian Records. The band's lineup includes Chino Moreno (Deftones), Shaun Lopez (Far) and Chuck Doom. Listen to 'Bitches Brew' via Spin above. Check out another song, 'The Epilogue,' below.
The loss of post-metal titans Isis was an unfortunate punch to the gut for fans of the imaginative and atmospheric quintet. However, key Isis members Jeff Caxide (bass), Aaron Harris (drums) and Bryant Clifford Meyer (guitar / keyboards) teamed up with Deftones vocalist Chino Moreno to form Palms in 2011. Palms didn't jump into releasing new material right away, but the act's debut self-titled release was more than worth the wait.
Chino Moreno may be going strong with Deftones, but this summer fans will be treated to his more atmospheric and moody side as he rocks out with his friends from Isis in the new band Palms. The group's self-titled debut is due June 25 via Ipecac Recordings and the album artwork and track listing for the effort have now surfaced.
Deftones frontman Chino Moreno is a man of many projects and his latest finds him recording with several former members of the band Isis in a new group called Palms. The band has confirmed the completion of their self-titled debut album and the disc is now due June 25 through Ipecac Recordings.
