DEFTONES Dial Up the New Album: Vocals in Progress!

DEFTONES fans rejoice! New music is on the horizon, and vocalist Chino Moreno is putting the finishing touches on his vocals.

The news comes courtesy of an Instagram post by David “Beno” Benviste, CEO of Velvet Hammer, DEFTONES‘ longtime management group. The post, which included some cryptic bold and italics (artistic license or hidden clues?), confirmed that Moreno is in the studio with renowned producer Nick Raskulinecz (RUSH, MASTODON, etc).

The exciting part? DEFTONES have already completed the music for the new album! The not-so-exciting part (but understandable for perfectionists like Moreno)? He’s taking his time to ensure the vocals are flawless.

This dedication shouldn’t come as a surprise. In a recent backstage interview at Coachella, Moreno hinted at the ongoing studio work, revealing he’s been diligently honing his performance for the upcoming record. He said:  ”We haven’t really talked much [publicly] about it. We’ve just sort of been working on and off over the last year and a half from when we 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.

“And I have, obviously, this show again next week, and then straight after that, I go back home to Oregon and I go in the studio. So as long as that takes… I hate to put a definite kind of timeframe, ’cause we’re not really in a rush. We want it to be great. I think that’s most important. But it is coming, and, yeah, it’s really good. We’re really excited with what we’ve been working on. And everybody’s jazzed.”

Discussing the direction the new DEFTONES music takes, Chino said: “I feel like, overall, it’s an invigorated kind of sound. We went in and everybody… It’s, like, after all these years, you go in, and it’s, like, we hadn’t written a record since — what was it? Pre-COVID, I think, when we were last in the studio. So it’d been a while since we’d actually… I mean, we’ve been playing shows, but we hadn’t really got into being creative.

“The creative part, to me, is always kind of the funnest part of being in this band. Performing is great, but coming up with something out of nothing, that feeling cannot be topped. And so when you get in the room with your friends, we’re laughing, we’re having fun and then someone does something and then I react to it or they react to what I’m doing, it goes in a circle and then, all of a sudden, we lift our heads up and there’s something that exists that didn’t exist before we walked in that room. That’s just great.”

This new album will be the first without bassist Sergio Vega, who departed the band in 2021 after four albums. While Fred Sablan has been filling in live, DEFTONES haven’t announced an official replacement.

So, what can DEFTONES fans expect? A meticulously crafted album with Moreno‘s signature vocals at the forefront, produced by the legendary Nick Raskulinecz. Stay tuned, because new DEFTONES music is definitely on the way!
