Deftones' Carpenter Unhappy With Direction Of New Album (A Top Story)
Their eighth studio release is out on April 8 via Warner Bros Records. And when asked about the one aspect of the record that he's most pleased with, Carpenter says it's the fact he contributed at all.
He tells Ultimate Guitar: "I think my proudest thing about my guitar playing on this record is just playing on the record because I didn't want to play on the record to begin with. It wasn't until later once I actually got into it. I look at all the songs on the record and they were all a challenge for me to get in to.
"When we were coming up with ideas and writing the songs, the stuff that was being written - the other guys' ideas - I wasn't too interested in it. It wasn't the style or the sound I was hoping we would take. It wasn't what I was expecting or wanting. My band is going one direction and I am going another one currently."
Carpenter states he won't quit the outfit but adds: "I would never leave the band that I started but the band started leaving me, I can't control that." Read more - here.
