MUSIC NEWS - Grammy-winning alternative rock band Deftones have announced the
November 13th release of their seventh studio album, entitled KOI NO YOKAN. To promote
the release they'll hit the road on a USA headlining tour, with special guest Scars On Broadway, which kicks off October 9 in Ventura, CA and wraps on the West Coast mid- November. Tickets go on sale next Friday, September 7 via Ticketmaster.com.
KOI NO YOKAN was recorded in Los Angeles, CA with Nick Raskulinecz (Alice In Chains, Foo Fighters, Rush) who also produced Diamond Eyes. Front man Chino Moreno summed up Deftones' sound in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, saying "Obviously we're an aggressive band; not the heaviest, but there's a lot of attack. He continued, "But there's also this lush beauty that flows within everything that we do, and that's my favorite part of the band. To me, it's the epitome of what the Deftones do."
From their 1994 debut Adrenaline to their platinum-certified, Billboard chart-topping,
Grammy-winning breakthrough album White Pony, Sacramento, CA's Deftones have always crossed-over genres, defied categorization and delivered compelling live performances around the globe.
