Deftones’ Chino Moreno Says New Crosses Music is in the Works
Deftones frontman Chino Moreno, who has kept his hand in a number of side projects over the years, has revealed that he is currently working on new music for Crosses, which also features ex-Far guitarist Shaun Lopez and bassist/producer Chuck Doom.
Speaking with Bloody Disgusting, Moreno revealed that a recent move inspired him to revisit some of the Crosses material he’s been working on in fits and starts over the years (the outfit’s only studio album came in 2014, with two EPs released prior). He explained:
“A few days ago, I just moved into a new place a little over a month ago, so I’ve been setting up my studio room in here and I broke out some of that [unreleased] stuff from then, and I started working on it! Now that the Deftones record is done and there’s no touring really in the near future, I kinda have time to work on stuff so I’m definitely going to dig in and see where I can go with that.
“I really really like that project. The best part about it for me was no one knew we were making that record even. We put it out as EP’s first and we just kinda dropped out of nowhere. Making music without any expectations was super freeing and fun. I really love doing it. I like the guys that I work with in that so I’m gonna try to get some of that stuff finalized… finished up.”
Unfortunately for Chino, people will now know that they’re making a record this time… but that’s good news for the rest of us.
We will, of course, keep you posted.
Deftones released their latest album, Ohms, in September.
