Deftones are getting the itch to play, having booked a gig on short notice at the Troubadour in Los Angeles and dropping by the Warner Bros. ski lodge headquarters, also in L.A., for a Friday performance.
Our hearts go out to Deftones bassist Chi Cheng and his family, as yet another bout of pneumonia is keeping the musician in the hospital. Back in June, Cheng, who has been in a three-plus-year coma, was supposed to be sent home after battling pneumonia but now remains hospitalized with another bout with the illness.
Deftones bassist Chi Cheng, who has spent nearly four years in and out of hospitals in a comatose or semiconscious state stemming from a 2008 car crash, may be returning home imminently after a recent diagnosis of pneumonia put him back in the hospital in June.
Deftones have made quick work of their next record. The band, who enjoyed a boost with their 'Diamond Eyes' album, recently returned to the studio and has finished writing and recording their still-untitled follow-up.
Very few acts have the ability to mix hard rock and ambient beauty like Deftones. 'Change (In the House of Flies)' is one of the 21st century's greatest examples of how true creativity and ingenuity can triumph over formulaic, radio-friendly products.
After a leak over the weekend, Slipknot have confirmed that they will indeed be headlining their own music festival called Knotfest. Moreover, it has now been revealed that the festival will be staged on two separate dates in Iowa and Wisconsin in August.
Slipknot had teased that a big announcement was coming on Monday, June 4, via their Twitter page on Saturday (June 2), but it looks like the folks at Ticketmaster have let the news ... slip. It appears the band will headline their own Knotfest in their home state of Iowa on Aug. 17, and the bill will also feature Deftones, Lamb of God, Serj Tankian, Dethklok, the Urge and Prong.
