Palms (ex-Isis, Deftones) have announced a string of U.S. tour dates that will commence this September. The band will be playing in nine cities, seven of which are in Texas and one show in New Mexico and one in California. So, Texans are bound to be pleased. You can check out the dates after the break.
Deftones have released a previously-unreleased track from their shelved album, Eros, which the band were working on prior to late bassist Chi Cheng’s automobile accident that left him in a coma. The track is the dreamy “Smile” and can be streamed after the break.
Today, April 13th, marks the one-year anniversary of Cheng’s passing.
I fucking love †††, one of the many projects involving Deftones vocalist Chino Moreno. This electronic-driven band, who I originally didn’t like but soon fell for, recently signed to Sumerian Records and announced that they will be releasing their debut full-length in November. Now, if that isn’t awesome enough, ††† have unleashed a new track from the album titled “†he Epilogue.” You can stream this radical jam after the jump and let it take over your mind.

The post-rock project featuring members of Isis and Deftones front man Chino Moreno, Palms have just released a music video for their song “Future Warrior.” This track comes off of Palms‘ debut, eponymous release which is available now. The video is odd, and not very simple like Chino’s last music video that I posted about yesterday. It’s very artistic and deep and I really like it. Check out the video below. Continue reading →
You may remember that we loved Deftones‘ Koi No Yokan here at American Aftermath, with the album landing in the top 10 of 2012 for Lane and myself. “Romantic Dreams” stands out as one of my favorite tracks on the album and I am pleased that Deftones have released a music video for the track. The video does not feature the band whatsoever, but instead focuses on a skateboarder, out on a night run, ripping it up.
I think it’s a very cool video and that might have something to do that I am both a skater and a Deftones fan. Check out the video after the jump. #A.D.I.D.A.S. Continue reading →

I love Deftones! Their last album Koi No Yokan even landed in my Top 5 albums of 2012 (duh!) and it was for good reasons: amazing song writing and execution. There were tons of stand out songs on Koi No Yokan but one of my favorites was “Swerve City” which now has a music video to go along with it. Continue reading →
The Dillinger Escape Plan’s intense, blood soaked and fiery performance at this year’s Golden Gods Awards has surfaced on the web. Watch as Dillinger perform an awesome three song set at the annual lackluster award show that includes their two new tracks “Prancer” and “When I Lost My Bet”. Chino Moreno of Deftones joins the band on stage as well for a cover of Depeche Mode’s “Behind the Wheel”. Then the band end it all with Greg Puciato’s signature fire blowing with the iconic “43% Burnt” riff. They seem so out of place performing at this. Check out their live set below.
Palms, the highly anticipated collaborative project from Chino Moreno (Deftones) and ex-Isis members Jeff Caxide, Aaron Harris and Bryant Clifford Meyer, has finally released a taste of what’s to come. Pitchfork is currently streaming the track “Patagonia” from their upcoming self titled debut which is due out on June 25th. The track is just what I expected this project to sound like; a culmination of the more melodious and ambient moments of Isis and Deftones. But that doesn’t mean the track exceeds my expectations for “Patagonia” is quite stellar. It’s totally entrancing and has a lot of that ambient Wavering Radiant era Isis sound I adore. You can stream the track at Pitchfork or stream it via Youtube below.
In a tribute to the late Deftones bassist Chi Cheng, East of the Wall closed their show in Philadelphia, PA this past weekend with a cover of Deftones’ classic track “Bored”. Luckily, fan-filmed footage surfaced on the web of this incredibly cover and can be viewed directly below!
I am sad to report that Deftones bassist Chi Cheng passed away today at the age of 42. As many of you know, Chi was left in a semi-conscious coma following a car accident back in November of 2008. His loved ones released a statement on his passing on oneloveforchi.com:
Above a still from Deftones classic music video for their song “Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away)” from their 1997 album Around the Fur. Director Frank Ockenfels also made a video for the acoustic rendition of the track that has yet to surface, until now! Ockenfels took to the web uploaded the previously unreleased video. You can view the rare clip below as well as the original. I mean, who doesn’t want to watch Chino Moreno float under a bridge?
It looks as if progressive metal act Periphery have been recruited to support the mighty Deftones on their upcoming Spring North American tour. The trek will see both bands travel from Canada to Texas in March to spread awesomeness all over your face. Below is the full schedule and you’d be just plain silly not to attend.
