New Deftones Album Due In October

DEFTONES frontman Chino Moreno told the Buenos Aires, Argentina radio station Vorterix Rock 103.1 earlier this week (see video below) that the band completed pre-production on its seventh album late last month and will enter the studio in a few days to begin recording the effort for a late 2012 release. "We start recording next week," he said. "Right before I came last week, we finished all the writing, so next week, when I get back, we start recording and we should have a record that comes out early fall… October. Maybe September."

2010's "Diamond Eyes" has been one of DEFTONES' most successful outings. The set's last single, "You've Seen The Butcher", was a Top 15 rock radio hit.

DEFTONES will once again record with Sergio Vega on bass. Vega stepped in for touring purposes after original bassist Chi Cheng was left in a semi-comatose state by a November 2008 car accident, and stayed on to record "Diamond Eyes" with the group.

Last October, Reprise Records released a limited-edition vinyl box set from DEFTONES. "Deftones: The Vinyl Collection, 1995 - 2011" is a seven-album (8 LP) retrospective containing the band's six studio albums - 1995's "Adrenaline", 1997's "Around The Fur", 2000's "White Pony", 2003's "Deftones", 2006's "Saturday Night Wrist", and 2010's "Diamond Eyes", and the limited-edition 2011 Record Store Day release "Covers". Each album was exclusively re-cut for vinyl from the original master recordings and pressed on 180-gram European virgin vinyl. The collection, which included a unique lithograph and cover art, came packaged in a hand-numbered collector's box pressing of 1,000 copies worldwide. 

Thanks to Blabbermouth for the report.
