Deftones Frontman Explains Their Setlist Choices


(TeamRock Radio) Deftones say they don't feel pressured to play newer material in their shows before they feel ready. Despite that they face criticism from across their fanbase depending on the material they choose to play, Moreno says the band find comfort in the slow rehearsal process.

Moreno tells No Brown M&Ms: "There's this handful of fans that study every setlist in every city we play. They say, 'Why dont you play this?' The bulk of the stuff we play is the stuff that we play well. We want to play a good show.

"Not that we couldn't play other songs well, but the idea is that, as soon as we feel very confident, we can slowly start bringing them into the set and swapping songs out. But if we don't play it live, it's because it's not well-rehearsed yet. Why force it in there if it's not ready?" Read more here.
