Nick Raskulinecz, who produced Deftones’ “Diamond Eyes”, has confirmed that he’s producing Deftones’ forthcoming. When asked whether Raskulinecz has any cool projects around the bend, he told Ultimate Guitar,:

“Yes, I just spent six months on the new Evanescence record which turned out amazing. I am currently going into the studio with a new band for Atlantic. And I have also got Alice In Chains doing preproduction in Los Angeles for the rest of the year and we’ll be gearing up to make a new Alice In Chains record. And after I’ve done the Rush record, hopefully I’ll begin work on another new Deftones record too”

Deftones interview with Kerrang!

YouTube Preview ImageKerrang! magazine conducted an interview with DEFTONES drummer Abe Cunningham and vocalist Chino Moreno at the Reading festival, which is being held August 26-28 in Reading, England. You can now watch the chat below.

DEFTONES recently began laying the groundwork for its seventh studio release, tentatively due next year. Vocalist Chino Moreno told Billboard magazine that all five members of the group were recording their own ideas already, but that DEFTONES music doesn’t really emerge until the full band gets into a room together and starts jamming.

He explained, “We find that when we actually get together in a rehearsal spot where there’s no distractions and we can work together cohesively as a band, that’s really when we’re writing songs.”

2010’s “Diamond Eyes” has been one of DEFTONES’ most successful outings. The set’s latest single, “You’ve Seen The Butcher”, was a Top 15 rock radio hit.

DEFTONES will once again record with Sergio Vega on bass. Vega stepped in for touring purposes after original bassist Chi Cheng was left in a semi-comatose state by a November 2008 car accident, and stayed on to record “Diamond Eyes” with the group.
