[Watch] Deftones - "Swerve City" (Official Video)

Deftones' latest record  Koi No Yokan grabbed you by the neck right from the very start with it's huge sound. The album opening track that did just that, "Swerve City", has now been given the official video treatment with a western style clip. The beautifully shot clip even features a cameo from the band's own Chino Moreno right at the end so stay tuned.

The band will play extensive dates over the rest of 2013, all of which can be found over here.


[News] Initial Leeds & Reading Festival Line-Up Announced Incl. Deftones & Alt-J

Leeds & Reading take place on a *usually* sunny bank-holiday weekend in August. For me it was my first ever Festival experience and next year will be my 9th in a row. Yeah, I know, 9. I feel a little older just for typing that. With 2012 being a raging success with sets from The Black Keys, Foo Fighters, The Cure, At The Drive In and Florence and the Machine, 2013's initial line-up has just been announced. It's a break from tradition as the festivals normally announce a large portion of the acts in March along with tickets immediately after. The line-up announcement so far, 4 acts, is a pretty mixed bag  but it should definitely get some people pretty excited. Deftones, Alt-J, Sub Focus and Boy Better Know are those 4.

Organisers of the festival have stated they're looking to broaden the horizons of the event with more stages and a re-shuffle of the main arenas, so I'm expecting this mix of acts to be a preview of something far bigger, covering many people's musical tastes.

Weekend tickets will go on sale tomorrow and they'll be doing a deposit scheme in which you can pit down £50 and then pay the rest before 31st March next year. Pretty neat huh?!

[Listen] Deftones - "Tempest"

After unleashing the explosive sounds of "Leathers" on us not too long ago, Deftones return with another new cut from their highly anticipated new album, Koi No Yokan. Titled "Tempest" the track is a little more melodic than the previous tease but it's by no means any less ferocious. I am seriously excited for this new album after these first two track. Anybody else?

It's due out on November 13th via Reprise Records but for now stream "Tempest" below via Pure Volume.

[Download] Deftones - "Leathers"

Well, I know what I'll be listening to for the next few days on repeat! Out of nowhere Deftones have just blasted our senses with a brand new track from their recently announced album, Koi No Yokanwhich is out on November 12th via Reprise. Titled "Leathers" the track starts off rather ominously before Chino's vocal tears at you like a wild beast and the gang let loose immediately demanding your attention. Hot damn this is great. You can download it for yourselves below. We're very much looking forward to hearing more from this album!

If you missed it previously, we've heard the band debut two other tracks in a live setting in the shape of "Roller Derby" and "Rosemary". November can't come soon enough...
