Good news! Deftones have almost finished their upcoming tenth full-length album

Never a band to go out of style or allow their sound to stagnate, Deftones have been hard at work on the follow up to Ohms, their 2020 album that remains the last thing the alt-metal band has released to date. Though they’re taking more time between albums these days, there’s never been a time where a Deftones album didn’t have some significant level of anticipation behind it. All great things take time, of course, but it finally appears we’re close to hearing new Deftones music.

It’s also been revealed that Deftones have an entire new album tracked instrumentally, with just Chino Moreno’s vocals to be added. In a new interview helpfully transcribed by, Moreno dove into the vague timeline fans can expect new music to appear, saying:

“We haven’t really talked much about it. We’ve just sort of been working on and off over the last year and a half. Like, from when we first started writing, to basically where we’re sitting right now, is we have a whole record recorded, all musically. And it’s pretty much my job right now to finish up the vocals. I have, obviously, this show again [‘Coachella‘] next week. And then straight after that I go back home again to Oregon, and I go up in the studio. So then as long as that takes… I hate to like put a definite timeframe [on it.] ‘Cause you know, we’re not really in a rush. We want it to be great — I think that’s most important. But it is coming. Yeah, it’s really good. We’re really excited with what we’ve been working on. Everybody’s jazzed.”

Fresh off a set at Coachella where they went viral for their cover of The Smiths as well as a rare performance of Saturday Night Wrist favorite “Combat”, their star is shining brighter than ever as a new generation of fans discovers what they’re all about.
