have unveiled the new track "Tempest
" from their much-anticipated forthcoming album "Koi No Yokan
You can hear "Tempest" in the player below before it is launched as a single on October 9. It follows "Leathers
" which the band released as a free download
The band have a lot to live up to after their acclaimed 2010 album "Diamond Eyes
" which was a return to form after a run of albums which some fans felt were below par. "Our records were starting to get pieced together versus really being created together, so for us it was a chance to get back to basics
", said frontman Chino Moreno
Describing the new record, Chino said the best thing about Deftones is their dynamics. "Yes, we're a heavy band, but we're not just in-your-face aggro the whole time, punching you in the face
", said Chino.
"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 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
