Saddle Up, City Boy: New DEFTONES Video Playing Now

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

I have been impatiently awaiting the release of Deftones new album Koi No Yokan. I mean, I have been anticipating this thing like the motherfucking rapture, you know? With the pure beauty and heaviness that came with Diamond Eyes, I knew the ‘Tones would not let me down. I have been a huge fan of this band for years and years and years, so I know that the band has released numerous albums with their own special flare. Diamond Eyes was something new and interesting and it fucking destroyed. Continue reading

Deftones couldn’t wait until the official release date of their new single “Tempest” to show it to you. The single will be available on iTunes on the 9th but you can stream this six minute bad boy below. “Tempest” starts off with ghostly atmospherics and Chino’s soft tenor crooning before the band shifts into a alternative rock swagger with tremendous low end. Chino’s vocals and the intoxicating chorus sound oh so very triumphant. I have a feeling Koi No Yokan is going to be glorious based on the two songs they have released so far. Listen now!
