DEFTONES singer Chino Moreno has offered an update on the band’s follow-up to 2016’s “Gore” album, which was recently recorded for a tentative late 2020 release. Speaking to Tim “Herb” Alexander for the PRIMUS drummer’s “Herb’s Happy Hour” show, Chino said (see video below): “We have a record that we finished maybe — I don’t know — about a month ago, we finally got all the final mixes of it. It’s supposed to come out in, I think, September. But we’re really happy with it. We worked with one of our longtime producer buddies, Terry Date, who did our first three albums. We hadn’t done a record with him in a while, and we went back in the studio with him, and it was super awesome. “It’s kind of been weird, because we recorded everything — the music stuff — all last summer in L.A., and then we have been working on overdubs and vocals and mixing and all that stuff since then, so it’s almost been a year,” he continued. “But, obviously the last six months have kind of been doing everything remote [due to the coronavirus pandemic]… Mainly, it was just me. All the music stuff was done, so just mainly vocal stuff, and then mixing and mastering, going back and forth. But we finally finalized everything, I wanna say a few weeks ago, maybe a month ago now. It’s gonna be sweet. I’m excited about it.” Moreno previously told Apple Music about DEFTONES‘ decision to reconnect with Date for the new album: “We’ve always wanted to go back and make records with him again… We love Terry. He’s pretty much been there since the beginning of us making records, and we just vibe with him really good. I mean, he’s super easy-going. He’s not a producer that is in there trying to push his ideas into what we’re doing other than just capture what it is that happens when we get together, as well as speaking up and telling us when stuff isn’t where it should be or whatever. So he’s just a great dude, and making this record with him was awesome. I think our main goal was to make sure that everybody in the band was involved, to an extent. I think our best records are when we’re all firing on all pistons, each one of us individually and collectively. So that was, I think, the only thing that we aim for, really.” This past May, DEFTONES postponed their 2020 North American tour due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping the globe. The Live Nation-produced 20-date trek with GOJIRA and POPPY. was scheduled to kick off on July 27 and conclude on September 5. DEFTONES have released eight studio albums to date and have sold over ten million albums worldwide. DEFTONES is Moreno, drummer Abe Cunningham, programmer Frank Delgado, guitarist Stephen Carpenter and bassist Sergio Vega. “Gore” bowed at No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 in 2016, moving over 71,000 units first week and marking DEFTONES‘ highest chart position in 13 years. The band also curated, launched, presented and headlined its own festival, Dia De Los Deftones, in 2018. Selling out both installments to date, the eclectic lineups hosted everyone from FUTURE and CHVRCHES to GOJIRA and MEGAN THEE STALLION.

When writers come up with good ideas, they can be copied endlessly until they become exhausting and cringeworthy to see. Yet, they continue popping up in the movies that are meant to scare us.  These cliches should […]

SHINEDOWN singer Brent Smith spoke to Nikki of the FM99 WNOR radio station about what the touring circuit might look like post-pandemic. He said (see video below): “It’s going to come back. It’s gonna have to come back in a way that is… There’s gonna be different protocol. But don’t have a knee-jerk reaction when someone says ‘the new normal,’ because that could be, and should be, a good thing. Because a lot of what I’m seeing, and a lot of the discussions I’ve been in with a lot of the people that we’ve worked with for over two decades now — from our trucking, our buses, our lighting, our pyrotechnics, our staging; all of these types of elements — that infrastructure, and the buildings and the festivals and the clubs and the theaters and the stadiums, they’re all doing the infrastructure right now to massively take the sanitation level and standard way up. So when you come into these buildings and stuff like that, it’s not nasty, it’s not dirty — it’s clean. And adding these things to where it’s keeping people accountable for things. “One of the biggest things that we know is that the UV light therapy is huge for that, because it just annihilates a lot of viruses,” he continued. “A lot of that’s been in the news here lately, but there’s a lot of arenas right now, there’s a lot of different places — clubs, theaters — that are getting ready to be able to have that standard to make their environment clean for their patrons and make it safe for everybody to come in. And that’s not a bad thing.” Smith went on to say that he is confident live concerts will eventually return. “It may take a moment,” he said. “It will obviously take certain people a little longer ot feel comfortable, but I make you a very real and solid promise. The number one thing — and we were always doing this before this pandemic happened — but I wanna rest everyone assured, from us to our fanbase, whether you’ve been there from the beginning or you’re just finding out who we are, when it is time, and we can be with each other again, your safety will always be the number one priority — not only your physical safety, but your health, your mental health… But we will never, ever sacrifice, and we will never cut corners when it comes to the public safety of our audience, no matter what country we’re playing. So please rest assured we would never put you in a dangerous environment like that. We will be with each other again. It may take a little bit of time. But always know that we always have your safety as our number one priority.” This past May, SHINEDOWN officially canceled its previously rescheduled “Deep Dive Tour” due to the coronavirus pandemic which is sweeping the globe. “Deep Dive Tour”, which promised deep cuts and B-sides from throughout SHINEDOWN‘s career, along with the group’s many radio hits, was originally slated to take place in the spring but was postponed to the summer before being scrapped altogether. Two months ago, Smith clarified his remarks about playing live, just a few days after he seemingly suggested that SHINEDOWN would tour this summer as planned no matter what. On May 7, Smith told Zippo Encore: “As of right now, that’s all a go. So we’re not backing off of that rescheduled timeline.” Smith later added, “We wanna do everything safely and we wanna go by the professionals in the medical community… but you can’t stay inside forever.” Five days later, Smith issued a clarification after some fans misconstrued his position to mean that SHINEDOWN would perform this summer against health officials’ advice. In a post on social media, Smith wrote: “I’d like to clear up any misunderstanding about our touring plans that may be out there as some of my comments were a little misconstrued recently in the midst of trying to stay positive in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.” He continued: “We’d like you all to know that while we can’t wait to play for you and see all of you on the road again, we will only do so when it’s safe. The health and wellness of our fans is what’s most important and something we take very seriously.” Smith told The Pulse Of Radio that he had a message of advice and hope for fans. “Don’t stay online all day long,” he said. “Get out. Get in the sunlight. Go for a walk. Go for a run. Reset. I’ve said this for many years, and it holds true even more now than ever: it is never goodbye, it’s just ’til next time, and we’ll see you all really soon.”
