Deftones Release First Teaser for ‘Gore’ Album
Update: Deftones have already set the teaser to private after previewing a song for several hours on Wednesday, Jan. 27.
If you're a Deftones fan, it's time to get excited. The band has just unveiled their first teaser for their next album and it reveals that the disc will be titled Gore. However, the teaser will just be up for a limited time.
The 30-second clip above starts off with a pinkish hue and the faint sound of guitar that becomes more prominent as the lens pulls back to reveal a flock of large pink birds flying through the sky. Meanwhile, the guitars build in intensity against the backdrop of a driving drum beat before the word "Gore" appears onscreen.
Gore had been rumored as a title for some time and frontman Chino Moreno recently had some fun with the rumors by posting a photo of Depeche Mode's Martin L. Gore with the title Deftones title on it. Check out his tweet below:
During a recent appearance at NAMM, guitarist Stephen Carpenter revealed, "I’m sitting around waiting for the release of our new record. It comes out April 8 and we have some dates in Texas in March and there’s nothing I can remember or recall for April, but May/June off to Europe for some festivals out there.”
During a chat last year, Moreno stated, "One thing this record that’s really cool sonically, our bass play is playing a 6-sting bass which is closer to a baritone guitar. So how his frequency works with my guitar frequency and Stef guitar frequency it molded a different sound, a different area of sonics that is new for us."
At present, Deftones are set to return to the road as one of the headliners on the MUSINK Festival, playing in Costa Mesa, Calif. on March 5. A number of Texas dates are also in the works for the band, along with a pair of May performances before they venture over to Europe in June.
