Deftones: New Album Title Revealed
Sacramento's Deftones has set "Diamond Eyes" as the title of its new album, due on May 18. A song from the CD, "Rocket Skates", will be made available as a free download via on February 23. Check out a sneak preview here. In a recent interview with, Deftones frontman Chino Moreno stated about the forthcoming CD: "The dynamics Deftones are known for aggressive overtones and lush openness. They're on opposite sides of the spectrum, but we meld them together without sounding contrived. There are a few heavy songs, too, like our first couple records, and there are also experimental tunes but there's not a minute on this record that feels like it doesn't need to be there. Each sound complements the other. I'll straight-up say it: it's definitely one of our best albums." Regarding he lyrical direction of the new album, Moreno said: "Well, I've been wanting to record a fantasy album like 'White Pony', where the lyrics are less, 'This is my life and this is what we're going through.' It helps take us away from reality. I don't like listening to people's problems I like music. Music has been smothered with that complaining since the early-'90s. It gets old. Instead of going to the opposite side of the spectrum and listening to Black Eyed Peas, which is just straight silly, I choose to listen to more instrumental music. "I do very little singing about myself on this record. I love songs where I can totally take myself out of being human. I can sing about really odd things, and they don't necessarily have to pertain to me at all. It paints a picture. Those are the kind of lyrics I grew up with like The Cure. Really visual images and no storytelling." Thanks for the report to
