Grammy-winning alternative rock band Deftones have announced a 2013 tour that kicks off on February 15th next year in Glasgow.
With a highly anticipated album titled ‘Koi No Yokan’ set to be released on the 12th November, it is described as being their boldest record yet. This included a rigorous daily schedule with producer Nick Raskulinecz, who also worked on ‘Diamond Eyes’.
“We kind of adopted this new way of doing things, where we’d have a 7 or 8 hour work day instead of just working on things a piece at a time,” drummer Abe Cunningham said, “It enabled us to be a lot more efficient.” Moreno agrees. “In the past, one of us would write something, record it, and then weeks — or even months — later, someone else would come along and add to it. We had totally lost that communal vibe. This time, all of the songs started with just the five of us together in a room, playing.” Those close collaborations led to a more deliberate drive and cohesive final product. “It gave us a real sense of focus,” says Cunningham.
They are currently on tour in the US which ends on the 30th of this month.
