Deftones are set to release their new album on April 8th. Or at least, that's the rumor. Nothing has been confirmed or denied. An advance stream of the album was supposedly given to a journalist, which seems itself highly unlikely as it would be very early in the promo process.
And April 8th is a Monday, when release dates are often set on a Friday. And the album cover included is purely fan art. But since we know that Eros has been shelved for now, let's use this entry as a placeholder for anything Deftones related.
This album is posted twice but this one has Smile and album art. I wish they would release this album. Chino admitted the band’s original plan was to release this album when Chi recovered fully. I think its important that the band has never said it will be shelved forever. I want them to heal and get through the grieving process but I understand that it can take a while to feel significantly better. The silver lining in my opinion is the band came together after the accident and has been closer then they had been in a long time in the wake and so far have put out two great Deftones records. Smile is an amazing track, and if the album is anything like that track I can not wait to get my hands on it!
It shows a release date of 9.25.15…to my knowledge, this is for the “new” album, not Eros. Am I missing something?
This isn’t Eros. Eros is the album they haven’t released that Chi played on.
The release of this album it´s being pushed to November
not for this album… this album has no release plans yet
I meant this album as the new album, but thanks for the aclaration
I am wondering why no one is mentioning the Deftones new album titled ‘Gore’ due out on March 18th, 2016?
Wait? What? @nickels26 Got a link? Is that title confirmed?! We should add that straight away?!
@lucid is correct. The information that I had was from a couple of days earlier. April 8th is the official release date.
Due April 8th according to an interview with the guitarist.
@lucid @nickels26 but the title isn’t confirmed, right?
Nope, but it might be right. Chino posted a photo of Freddy Krueger and a title at the bottom left that says “Prayers/Triangles” which is supposed to be the opening track from the leaked photo.
Since it seems highly likely that the album is indeed titled Gore, I’m renaming this entry as there’s another one for the now shelved album Eros. The Metal Injection @nickels26 still doesn’t confirm the title. But let’s wait and see.
April 8th is most definitely a Friday, stoked none-the-less though.
Yeah, April 8th is a Friday.
The title has now been confirmed as ‘Gore’.
“The band released a clip and confirmed the title of their upcoming eighth studio album on Wednesday. “Gore” is scheduled to be released on April 8.”

Don’t miss it!
Sorry, different timezones confuse the shit out of me.
That quote you added Mojib was Chino making fun of Kanye ?
ahh ok that makes more sense now LOL
Prayers/Triangles was such a disappointing track. Sounds like radio friendly rock.
it sucked pretty bad, guitars and mix overall sound like ass. stop being a fanboy and be objective
I have to agree. I’ve been a Deftones fan for ~15 years or so and this is probably the 2nd worst single I’ve heard from them (behind only Mein). Production is poor, auto-tune is obvious, song is repetitive, vocals are poor quality, and the screaming part’s EQ is horrible. It just sounds sloppy and spliced together as a whole. Hopefully the rest of the album is quite a bit better, but from what I’ve heard from Stephen pertaining to creative differences, I’m far from optimistic about how things will turn out.
You will never be free.
same & agreed.
well said.. i have nothing more to add LOL
They played a new song titled “Doomed User” the other night live. Hoping that it sounds better in the future, but the early take is that it’s interesting. Chino’s vocals were pretty harsh sounding.
New single is OK, but “Doomed User” sounds pretty dam heavy. There is a live video on youtube floating around.
Premier of “Doomed User”
Doomed User is streaming on the SiriusXm website. In my opinion, it more than makes up for the disappointment that was P/T.
Meh. I didn’t really like it. The vocals sound horrendous. The whole song sounds like a poorly executed demo.
Sometimes it’s good to sound like a demo.
When the song is a demo, this is true. It sounds unprofessional, not cool in a low-fi way like Nirvana’s “In Utero” album. Had the quality been reminiscent to that album, I’d love the slightly less produced sound.
I think a Deftones album with production from Albini would sound muddy as shit….and Abe’s chops would be a mile away from everything else. Steve Albini has some interesting ideas for production, but I don’t think the approach would be a good one for the Deftones style of music.
Like Failure’s first album, “Comfort;” that album has so much potential. But production/mixing ruined what it could have been.
I meant that as more of an example than anything else, not a direct comparison. I would personally prefer if the band went back to Terry Date, but I wouldn’t have a problem with a “lo-fi” sound. The problem, however, is that the mix sounds horrible on the two songs that have been released and you can hear the auto-tune in the vocals.
It sounds unintentionally lo-fi in some ways and digital in others, but in the worst combination possible.
Chino released a clip of Hearts/Wires at the end of one of his playlists. It’s just over a minute long and it’s amazing.
what playlist is this you speak of?
It was shared from Chino’s twitter page. It’s from his most recent Tweet, which will link you to the download. The H/W clip is at the end.
where is the tracklist???
Top of the page, under the Video for Prayers/Triangles.
I should have been more specific….. Where is the track list for chinos “Lubbock” send space file which supposedly had hearts/wires in it?
Available on Chinos twitter account…
It’s just the intro that is already on Vimeo
leaked today (:
Where the Hell is the leak for this album??
The wait is KILLING me. ??? Checking this page and Sharing Lungs literally every 3 minutes. I called my local record store; won’t be in until Wednesday. Leak already! I’ll buy the album in every format available next week. I want Deftones to finally have a number one album, but I need to hear GORE.
I hear you. Since when does it take this long for an album to leak? Of course it has to be this one.
Koi No Yokan was at lease a week and a half early iirc.
where to search for it? pls suggest
What are those people talking about? I just checked every site listed and it hasn’t leaked yet
Agreed i’ve scoured every site I know and nothing… I’m gonna give it a while and come back. This wait is killing me
Indeed, none of those sites have it.
The leak definitely is a hoax :(
