The gods that are the Deftones have spoken and finally come clean regarding their upcoming album 'Eros'. Just as I predicted in my last blog post, 'Eros' will be put on hold for now as they stated on their website last week that they "realized this record doesn’t best encompass and represent who we are currently as people and as musicians." They went on to say that eventually the album "will see the light of day at some point, we collectively made the decision that we needed to take a new approach, and with Chi’s condition heavy on our minds while doing so." Basically they're saying what I told you guys a few weeks back. So now they are working on a new album that they claim will be their best recorded material ever, or at least they're striving for that. "We needed to return to the studio to do what we felt was right artistically. Our inspiration and unity as a band is stronger than it has ever been before and we needed to channel that energy into our music, and deliver to our fans what you rightly deserve: the best Deftones record that we can make." The boys got to do what they got to do and if they feel they need to change direction a little, I'm totally with that. I've waited long enough for this, what's another few extra months. I'm sure it will be well worth it...it always is without a doubt. For more information or to send some support to their bassist Chi, click here. Check out some recent shots from their studio below.
