Having revealed the other day that their forthcoming seventh studio album is almost complete, Deftones have revealed the name of the album, titling it Koi No Yokan, along with a release date of 13th November (give or take for an Australian release date).
“Koi No Yokan” translated from Japanese is the feeling that is similar to (but not exactly the same as) love at first sight. Or another way to put it is that it’s the sense a person might get upon meeting someone and “knowing” that they are going to fall in love. Or an even better and more straightforward way to put it is that future love is inevitable.
It was only announced the other day that the band had wrapped up on the recording and were in the process of mixing, but according to Chino Moreno, the band’s long-time vocalist, they would be going out to the desert to wind down and do some covers, which is apparently something they like to do at the end of a recording.
“Actually going at the end of this month into the desert, Death Valley, we’re gonna go and record for three days cause the record’s done. It’s been recorded, but usually at the end of the recording process we record a few covers, so we’re going to go do that.” Speaking to Minnesota radio station 93X prior to Knotfest.
The band will then play shows around the US as a special guest on the Scars on Broadway tour, before launching the new album.
