Deftones frontman Chino Moreno was interviewed by Rolling Stone about band's new album. You can read some excerpts below:

"I think it's a little more of a heady record," said Moreno when comparing the upcoming album to their last; "I feel like we've gone into the songs and really dissected them. If something sounded a little straight, we took a left turn and made things a little screwy. We just tried something completely opposite, not to sabotage it, but to challenge ourselves and try new things that we haven't done in the past. The songs are amazing and we wrote them in a really cool way. We had all of us in a room together with one person expressing an idea and another person jumping on it. The songs are really built as a collective. We have five guys who have almost completely different takes on music, so when it works- it works great."

The new album should be out later this year.
