Deftones announce new album, U.S. tour

Official press release: Grammy-winning alternative rock band Deftones have announced the November 13th release of their seventh studio album, entitled Koi No Yokan. To support the release they will hit the road on a nationwide headlining tour, with special guest Scars On Broadway, which kicks off October 9th in Ventura, CA and will conclude on the West Coast mid November. Tickets on sale next Friday, September 7 via Koi No Yokan was recorded in Los Angeles, CA with Nick Raskulinecz (Alice In Chains, Foo Fighters, Rush) who also produced Diamond Eyes. Frontman Chino Moreno summed up Deftones' sound in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, saying "Obviously we're an aggressive band @ not the heaviest, but there's a lot of attack. He continues, "But there's also this lush beauty that flows within everything that we do, and that's my favorite part of the band. To me, it's the epitome of what the Deftones do." From their 1994 debut Adrenaline to their platinum-certified, Billboard chart-topping, Grammy-winning breakthrough album White Pony, Deftones have continually crossed-over genres, defied categorization and delivered compelling live performances around the world. The Sacramento band's 2010 release Diamond Eyes was named iTunes' "Rock Album of the Year," as well as Kerrang!'s 2010 Album of the Year. Diamond Eyes also graced many other critics and readers "Best Of" lists, including MySpace, AOL Noisecreep, Alternative Press, MOG, and Drowned In Sound.

anonymous 8/30/2012 12:51:18 PM

Koi No Yokan (Japanese): The sense upon first meeting a person that the two of you are going to fall into love. This is different than "love at first sight," since it implies that you might have a sense of imminent love, somewhere down the road, without yet feeling it. The term captures the intimation of inevitable love in the future, rather than the instant attraction implied by love at first sight.

anonymous 8/30/2012 12:56:11 PM

The only bad words I have for the Deftones is no dadgum Austin date at Emo's or ACL Live. What the fck?

Have you been to the new emos on riverside? It's shit mate. Love Deftones but there albums keep getting worse. Diamond eyes had maybe 2 songs that were listenable. Never got the chance to see them live, doesn't really bother me that I won't get to see' em now. (also earlier this year some douche stole my car stereo with adrenaline inside... fck it.)
