Seventeen years after releasing their debut, Deftones have released their seventh full-length studio album, Koi No Yokan.
The album is the second release without long-time bassist Chi Cheng, who continues to recover from a car accident in 2008. Bassist Sergio Vega, who performed on the 2010 release Diamond Eyes, took a larger role in Koi No Yokan, according to frontman Chino Moreno.
In an interview with Billboard, Moreno said the album is “not a super fast or slow record. It’s very dynamic… There’s a lot of aggression in some of the music, but there’s also this very soothing element where there’s a lot of soundscapes rather than attack, attack, attack the whole time.”
Deftones are currently on tour in the US, with dates in the UK, France and Germany kicking off in February 2013.
