All Day I Dream: DEFTONES Release New Music Video

You may remember that we loved DeftonesKoi 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.

Watch THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN Perform At The Golden Gods Awards

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 Release New Track

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.
