Deftones Won’t Play New Songs On Current Tour | Music News
Deftones are currently co-headlining on tour with Incubus and it all started last week but if you’re a fan of Deftones, prepare to be disappointed as you won’t hear any of their new material during their performances. Chino Moreno spoke to The Pulse Of Radio to explain why fans will have to wait to hear the new songs live, even though they have nearly completed their 8th studio album.
“We contemplated it a little bit, we talked about it“, Chino said. “But with, you know, YouTube and things like that, it’s like, by the time people hear the real recorded version, a live version recorded on someone’s camera phone will be people’s first idea of what our new record sounds like. I really don’t think we wanted to take that step yet. But yeah, it is sort of hard ’cause we’re sitting on all this material that we’re really excited about and really want to play“.
Chino also recently talked about the new tracks in a interview with RollingsStone.com: “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“.
