Deftones will be Busy!

The Deftones are going to be very busy in the next little while, giving fans a taste of music new and old, and a whole bunch of it!

First they’re up for playing a couple festivals, starting with the Epicenter Festival on September 22 in Irvine, California. The next day they’ll be in Sacramento, playing at the Aftershock Festival before taking a small rest before their North American tour. That begins on October 9 in Ventura, California and will take the band through 16 different cities; mostly throughout the United States with one stop in Vancouver, British Columbia. The major American stops include Boston, Seattle, Salt Lake City, and Chicago. You can find a full list of tour dates and venues at our Deftones Tickets page.

Those who are lucky enough to catch one of these live shows will most likely be able to hear some of the band’s newest music. They recently announced that their seventh studio effort is to be released on November 13, under the title of Koi No Yokan.

Fans can expect the same head-banging, thrashing music that they love about the Deftones on this new album, but the band has also taken a different approach this time.

“Some of my favorite things about Deftones are the dynamics,” says singer Chino Moreno. “Yes we’re a heavy band, but we’re just not in-your-face agro 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. I understand that’s a big part of our sound, but I really feel like we reached a peak on our dynamics on this record with those two qualities — the beauty of something and just straight, ruthless aggression.”
