chino moreno’s new side project with the isis dudes, palms, has settled in on a single for their new self-titled album, which drops on june 25th. everything sounds great, and i can’t believe we’re getting a chino side project in a timely fashion. remember how long it took for that team sleep LP to come out?
great news. a while ago, we reported that chino moreno (deftones) new project with folks from isis palms is now a reality. last night, chino let his fans listen to a new song via an online stream (listen to it above, for now) and announced that the debut LP will drop june 25th. which is a long time away.
that’s a loooong time from now, so soak in that single while that unmastered stream is up.
Deftones have remained one of my favorite bands since I was in middle school. It was then that I discovered the furious Around the Fur, which ultimately led to White Pony – which changed my entire outlook on the boundaries of heavy music and how limitless it was. Since White Pony, the band that’s 2 years younger than me (that’s 24 for you math wizards) has released four great and strangely consistent albums, including the most recent, Koi No Yokan, which came out earlier this week on November 13th. The Texas stint of their current tour were the first dates after the release, so it was to be expected that the band’s set would lean heavily towards it, but that wasn’t the case.
[Note: Sorry for the weak photos. My main squeeze Sunbear wasn't in attendance. Oh and there was no photo pit, either!]
well, god damn. while chino’s currently (supposed to be) working on a new deftones album, he had the time to link up with aaron harris, clifford meyer, and jeff caxide of the now disbanded isis. with the rhythmic core of isis in tact, i’m expecting some sludgy, nasty shit with chino at the vocal helm. the group will self-produce and self-release their debut LP, which they say is coming in 2012.
