Deftones mark 20th anniversary of self-titled album with new vinyl and merch

Deftones have marked the 20th anniversary of their self-titled album by releasing special new vinyl and merch.

‘Deftones’ came out in 2003, three years after the legendary, Platinum-selling ‘White Pony’, and featured the singles ‘Minerva’ and ‘Hexagram’.

Celebrating its birthday, which lands today (May 20), Deftones shared details of a limited-edition ruby red translucent vinyl version of the album.

Alongside this, new merch including CDs, t-shirts, hoodies, mugs and more unusual items – a beer pong set, incense – have also all been announced, and can be pre-ordered here.

The band’s last new album came in the form of 2020’s ‘Ohms’. Last year, the band spoke to NME backstage at Download Festival about the future of the band.

“The next one is going to be soft as hell,” Abe Cunningham joked of new material. “Everyone’s going to weep uncontrollably for months. There’ll be a tissue shortage around the world. “No, for better or worse, there are never any rules or preconceived thought put into much of what we create. It’s mostly just jamming it out and seeing what happens.”

He went on: “When we get together and write, it’s 70 per cent about the hang. If that’s going well, shit comes out. When it’s no longer fun, that’s a problem. There have been times like that. It’s part of being around for a long, long time, so we try to keep it on the light side these days.”

Reviewing ‘Ohms’, NME wrote: “The band’s reunion with producer Terry Date results in an album that’s as thrilling – and as emotional – as they have ever sounded.”

The show was part of the launch event for the bands’ capsule collection collaboration with the fashion line Heaven By Marc Jacobs. The collection was also launched as a project with the streetwear brand Stray Rats.

Items featured in the collection include Deftones branded shirts, bracelets, pins, earrings, and other various apparel, and a $30 ‘Around The Fur’ CD that’s already sold out. Some items have already sold out, but other items (including a pair of boots which cost $610) remain available for purchase.

According to the Deftones official website, the band will next take to the stage at the Sick New World festival in Las Vegas on May 13. This will be followed by two other US summer festival appearances at Welcome To Rockville on May 21 and the Sonic Temple Music And Art Festival on May 28.

Last year Deftones brought back their Dia de Los Deftones festival. At the time singer Chino Moreno said: “We take a ton of pride in curating it; it’s a chance for us to put forth and showcase some artists that we love and respect, and putting on an amazing day of music and culture for our fans. We’re excited to see everyone again out at Petco in November.”

System Of A Down, Korn, Deftones, Incubus and more acts have been announced to headline the inaugural Sick New World Festival in Las Vegas, US.

The one-day event, which celebrates seasoned nu-metal, rock and industrial bands as well as newer acts, takes place on May 13, 2023 at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds in Nevada.

Joining the headliners are Papa Roach, Evanescence, Turnstile, Hoobastank, Coal Chamber, reunited Flyleaf with original singer Lacey Sturm, Ministry, Melvins and many more acts. Death Grips will also mark their first return to the live circuit since 2019.

Sisters Of Mercy, Filter, 100 Gecs, HEALTH, Machine Girl, Killing Joke, Cradle Of Filth, Body Count and She Wants Revenge are also on the line-up.

Those interested in attending can sign up a ticket pre-sale beginning this Friday (November 11) at 10am PT (6pm GMT) here. The general sale kicks off at 2pm PT (10pm GMT) on the website on the same day.

News of the nostalgia-marketed festival comes in the wake of the inaugural When We Were Young, which last month showcased veteran emo and pop-punk bands in Las Vegas.

NME‘s Maya Georgi wrote in a four-star review: “It takes a lot to live up to the hype and pull off what many thought was impossible, but as fans head back into the desert in their checkered vans with wide smiles across their faces, it’s safe to say the emo fest was not only a party for those desiring nostalgia but proof positive of a more inclusive post-punk future.
