Deftones vocalist Chino Moreno has announced that the band is planning to put out a retrospective live vinyl set chronicling the band's performance history. In an interview on Nikki Sixx's Sixx Sense radio show, the singer revealed that he has been working on the set:
"This last week and a half I've been having to go through all these tapes. We're putting out a live vinyl set. For every record we're going to put out four or five songs from that era."
Chino also noted that some of the band's earlier tapes have been hard to listen to, with their performances not being up to the standard of their later live output: "So I've been going through these tapes from '95-'96 and they're hard to listen to. I really feel that we have gotten better as a band, and me as vocalist. When we first started, I didn't know what I was doing. There's something neat about that too."
In December of last year, the band announced that they would be playing a series of U.S shows in support of new album "Koi No Yokan".
