Deftones Took Different Approach On New Album

(TeamRock Radio) Deftones frontman Chino Moreno says the band went out of their comfort zone during recording sessions for their upcoming eighth album. Gore is released on April 8 via Warner Bros Records and Moreno says it marks a departure from the sound on their previous two albums - 2010's Diamond Eyes and 2012 effort Koi No Yokan.

He tells Kerrang: "We recorded this record in a different way. I'm not saying we went in with any preconceived ideas as such, but I do think we went in knowing that we wanted to make this record a little different from the last two.

"It's still a Deftones record - we didn't really have any new influences that changed that. But it's an expansion of what we were comfortable with. And it's important to get out of your comfort zone sometimes with the music - just to be excited.

"It's got a different look. A different shade of colour. I'd say some shade of purple. I don't know why, but I think it sits somewhere between pink, red and purple. Sometimes when I hear music, I see colour, and when it came time to work on the artwork for this batch of songs, I knew exactly what I wanted." Read more here.
