Kerrang! can corroborate this. While we’re not at liberty to reveal full details yet, the first single is a gargantuan addition to Deftones’ library. Chino, always a soft-spoken, laidback interviewee, can’t hide his excitement when he remembers the first time it came into his life – via email.
Deftones participated in a virtual press conference with several media outlets on Wednesday, discussing the 20th anniversary of their landmark album White Pony. One of the newsy bits to come out of the chat was that the band plans to release a deluxe edition of the 2000 album with a bonus alternate disc of brand-new remixes dubbed “Black Stallion”.
“We actually tracked everything over the summer, last summer — June and July — we were in the studio tracking,” said Cunningham. “But we actually just completed everything. … We were down in L.A. recording, but we mixed up in Seattle.”
He added, “We’re working with our old pal Terry Date, who did a bunch of our earlier records and stuff, too. He’s up there [in Seattle] with this whole distancing thing; it was a bit rough, but we figured out a way to kind of do the mixes without being there.”
Deftones have announced a new tour.
