Deftones: "We just found a different way to approach the new album"


ALT 98.7 KYSR interviewed Deftones drummer Abe Cunningham and bassist Sergio Vega at the Rock In Rio USA festival. Below the video and some excerpts:


About the new album: "We started working on it about a year ago. We had like a real dense five-year run from 2010's 'Diamond Eyes' through 'Koi' and touring a lot, being around each other a lot. And we just found a different way to approach this record, where we would get on a couple of weeks, play a couple of shows, go home for a couple of weeks, and found this different way that was a little more balanced. And also because of all of the buildup and all of the momentum we have had, like really fruitful, so we have a lot of material. We're super excited on it. And we've gotta get it done and get it out there. We're super stoked to share that at some point."
