Deftones set sights on studio
Guitarist Carpenter says 8th album work is set to begin next month - but they’re “not all the way ready”
Deftones are aiming to start recording their eighth album next month, says guitarist Stephen Carpenter.
But the band aren’t committing to any tight schedule for the follow-up to 2012’s Koi No Yokan.
Carpenter rells Gold Rush: “We’re actually writing. We’re supposed to be going in to record it next month – but we’re taking it as it goes.
“We’re not all the way ready, but we’ve still got time. We’re working on it.”
In March 2013 frontman Chino Moreno said the band would retain their usual approach to songwriting for their next title, reporting: “We don’t plan on what kind of record we’re going to make – we react to each other.
“One guy starts playing something then the other guy reacts to it, and the other guys react to that. Next thing we know, we have a song. I think that’s the best way to write music.”
