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.
Deftones continue to receive plenty of acclaim for their 'Koi No Yokan' album, with the disc making many year-end Top 10 critics lists, including a No. 1 spot on Loudwire's 10 Best Rock Albums of 2012. But the success for the band is bittersweet as they've been doing it without the services of longtime bassist Chi Cheng, who has mostly been in a comatose state since his 2008 car accident.
Deftones' singer Chino Moreno remains hard at work on songs other than those of his main band. The singer formed the side project ††† (which is pronounced "Crosses") with Far guitarist Shaun Lopez and they will issue a second EP, dubbed 'EP ††,' on Jan. 24. Their debut recording, called 'EP †,' was released for free, in exchange for providing your email address. However, to prep fans for this new EP, the duo has issued an ethereal, airy new song, called 'Prurien†.'
