The nu-metal survivors are working on their latest album.

The Deftones are on-track to release the follow-up to 2012’s Koi No Yokan in September or October. Frontman Chino Moreno tells Rolling Stone that “the songs are amazing, and we wrote them in a really cool way.”

“We had all of us in a room together with one person expressing an idea and another person jumping on it. The songs are really built as a collective. We have five guys who have almost completely different takes on music, so when it works, it works great,” he explains.

As for the tone of the album, he describes it as “a little more of a heady record” than the band’s last one. “We just tried something completely opposite, not to sabotage it, but to challenge ourselves and try new things that we haven’t done in the past.

“It definitely feels like we’ve taken a step from our last record,” he says. “But it’s definitely a Deftones record, and it has all the elements that make us who we are. We’re not going out there to change anything, other than just thinking outside the box.”
