“Ohms” on Amazon’s Top 30 (Rock)

Without even been released officially Deftones upcoming new album – “Ohms” – is already at #28 in Amazon’s CD/Vinyl top chart (Rock). Right behind classics like “Nevermind” and “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” and ahead of Pink Floyd’s “The Dark Side of the Moon”, the 9th studio album overall is in Amazon’s top 70’s music best-sellers. When released, “Ohms” might no be Deftones’ most sold album but it might be the one that stays the most weeks in rock top charts. Youtube’s official video for “Ohms” has already surpassed the 2 million views, more than “Digital Bath” and “7 Words” views all together.

Deftones’ New Album, Ohms: Everything We Know So Far

For the past four years, fans have been eagerly awaiting the follow-up to Deftones’ excellent eighth album Gore. And, at long last, the brilliantly titled Ohms is finally on the horizon. But what’s it going to sound like? How was it made? And what does it tell us about the Sacramento alt.metal titans in 2020? Here’s everything we know so far…

It’ll Be Released In September

After months of speculation, we finally have a definitive release date for Deftones’ ninth full-length: it’ll be out on September 25, 2020 via Reprise Records.

Though it feels like no time at all now until we get to hear it, Ohms’ timeline has been pretty up in the air since its creation; the band were working on it as far back as early 2019, but in May this year frontman Chino Moreno understandably wasn’t quite sure about any concrete plans amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“We haven’t really discussed it too deeply other than we plan on it coming out this summer,” he said. “It’s not looking like we’re going to be able to get out there this summer to support it. So does it make sense to put it out when you can’t support it? Maybe. Maybe not. I don’t know. I think that’s something that we’re going to have to figure out sooner than later. But I think our mindset right now is just finishing it completely and making sure that it’s great. And then taking it from there.”

The Band Joined Forces With A Legendary Producer

It was only in February this year that the world learned the ridiculously exciting news that Deftones had recruited the mighty Terry Date to produce Ohms. Previously, the studio whizz joined forces with the band on their first four albums – 1995’s Adrenaline, 1997’s Around The Fur, 2000’s White Pony and 2003’s self-titled – as well as producing albums and songs by the likes of Slipknot, Bring Me The Horizon, Limp Bizkit and Slayer throughout his inimitable career.

The guys worked together at LA’s Henson and Seattle’s Trainwreck Studios this time around, with drummer Abe Cunningham revealing to Kerrang! that “coffee, juice, good beer, laughter, a little piss’n’vinegar, but a lot less tequila” were involved in the process. Sounds like a delicious recipe to us.

Ohms Will Likely Have A Wide Range Of Sounds

When we caught up with Chino during the writing process in 2019, the frontman alluded to “experimental sort of modes” that Deftones were getting into on Ohms, enthusing that it’s the “funnest phase” that the band dabble in.

“We’re a little bit in that mode where we’re just trying completely different ways of doing things,” he explained. “And that’s what keeps it fun for us for the most part; not really knowing what’s going to become of this, or what type of record we’re making – just letting it kind of happen. It’s been good on that level. That’s the best way I can describe where we’re at, and where we’re going.”

Then, in June, Abe responded to an interview question asking if Deftones’ new album is “heavier” than its predecessors, replying: “It’s all that. It’s always hard to describe it. I’ll say this… We can’t help but sound like ourselves, but just being back with Terry, there’s certain sounds that we developed with Terry that kind of became sort of our core sounds, and those are back again.”

Oh yeah, and there are seagulls on it. Make of that what you will.

There Will Be 10 Songs On The Album

And the intriguing tracklist for Ohms is as follows:

1. Genesis
2. Ceremony
3. Urantia
4. Errorr
5. The Spell Of Mathematics
6. Pompeji
7. This Link Is Dead
8. Radiant City
9. Headless
10. Ohms

And We’ve Already Heard The Last Song, Er, First…

Yep, Ohms’ final song – the title-track – was the single that Deftones opted to lead with above all else. And, according to Chino, it’s a pretty decent indication of what else is to come on September 25…

“That’s a good scope of where this record’s at, and as a Deftones song in general,” he revealed. “That yin and yang of what we’ve always done of making very brutal music while having these lush overtones and undertones within it is what makes us who we are.

“We’ve never just been a metal band, we’ve never just been an alternative band, we’ve always just been us. We feel comfortable in never having to choose and let the songs unfold in an organic way.”

Explaining the opening lyrics about being ‘surrounded by debris of the past’, the frontman told Kerrang!: “It’s basically, like, here we are, this is where we are today. We’re surrounded by every decision that we’ve made in the past, but the chorus is very hopeful and optimistic. Lyrically, I didn’t change much. These were the first thoughts that came and I just wrote them down and they worked. Sometimes you get lucky like that.”

Guitarist Stef Carpenter Is Back In A Big Way

While 2016 album Gore was partially overshadowed by guitarist Stephen ‘Stef’ Carpenter’s comments that he “didn’t want to play on the record to begin with”, Ohms is already a very different beast.

“He was involved in Gore, let’s not get it wrong,” Chino told Kerrang! recently. “Phantom Bride? Aside from the lyrics and drums, he wrote that all by himself. He did have something to do with the record, he just wasn’t fully engaged, and it wasn’t because we were like, ‘Our songs are better.’ It was nothing like that. He was going through something, and after the record was done he talked to me a little bit about it, like, ‘I’m sorry I wasn’t as available as I should have been.’ I was like, ‘Dude, you’re my brother, I totally understand.’ When the record came out, I think people felt that Stef wasn’t as big a part of it and that it may have suffered in certain areas because of that, so one of the most important things is that everybody is engaged and everybody is excited.”

The Artwork Is Surprisingly Minimalist

Though the band haven’t yet explained what Ohms’ simple album artwork represents, it was teased on a huge Billboard in Los Angeles ahead of the record’s official announcement – and looked absolutely wicked. The classy cover was designed by the one and only Frank Maddocks – the band’s art director of 20 years, who also helped bring the iconic visuals of 2000 LP White Pony to life – and it looks a little something like this:

Deftones Ohms

And Deftones Have Big Live Plans To Follow…

Okay, so we don’t exactly know when the live circuit is going to properly return following the devastating mess that COVID-19 has caused, but Deftones have already locked in shows on both sides of the Atlantic in 2021: first, they’ll hit the UK for next year’s Download Festival in June (sub-headlining to Biffy Clyro, which is just bloody brilliant), and then in August and September they’ll take on the U.S. alongside Gojira and Poppy.

Bring. It. On.

There’s A Song On The New Deftones Album That Has Seagulls On It

As the release of Deftones’ new album Ohms creeps closer, the band have started to tease what’s to come from their highly-anticipated ninth studio effort – and while frontman Chino Moreno has already said that the title-track is a good indication of where things are headed, there are seemingly some unexpected musical choices taken, too.

Case in point: the song Pompeji, which Chino and drummer Abe Cunningham reveal exclusively to Kerrang! has seagulls on it. It wasn’t planned that they would feature in the track, but Chino decided to add them into the fold once it was finished, finding a 12-minute recording of the birds and putting in a few choice highlights.

“It’s funny, because I’ve always wanted to put them in a song,” he explains. “They’re sort of spooky. Don Henley’s Boys Of Summer has this one little section where you hear seagulls and it always made me feel creepy.

“I like it because it changes the setting of the song,” Chino continues. “It takes you somewhere.”

“We’ve had crickets before,” jokes Abe. “There are always teeny hidden beasts and insects stashed away.”

Chino also recently elaborated on why Deftones opted for the title Ohms: “It’s that balance and polarity of things. I’ve always described our band as having that yin and yang. As people, the music we make, and the lyrics that I write, there’s always this juxtaposition and that’s the beauty of what we’ve created.”

Ohms is due out on September 25 via Warner Records.

Chino Moreno Says New Single Ohms Reflects “A Good Scope” Of Deftones’ Upcoming Album

Fans who have been spinning Deftones’ incredible new single Ohms on repeat since its release last Friday will no doubt be wondering if they can expect similar brilliance when it comes to the band’s upcoming album of the same name – and frontman Chino Moreno has indicated that yes indeed, they can.

When asked by NME if Ohms (the single) is representative of the rest of Deftones’ ninth offering, the vocalist explains, “It sounds like we’re in peril when the song starts with a riff that’s all angular and dirty, then all of a sudden it lifts up with the chorus.

“That’s a good scope of where this record’s at, and as a Deftones song in general. That yin and yang of what we’ve always done of making very brutal music while having these lush overtones and undertones within it is what makes us who we are.

“We’ve never just been a metal band, we’ve never just been an alternative band, we’ve always just been us. We feel comfortable in never having to choose and let the songs unfold in an organic way.”

Speaking to Kerrang! last week about the record, Chino revealed of why they opted for the title Ohms: “It’s that balance and polarity of things. I’ve always described our band as having that yin and yang. As people, the music we make, and the lyrics that I write, there’s always this juxtaposition and that’s the beauty of what we’ve created.”

DEFTONES Unveil Music Video For ‘Ohms’ Title Track

The official Rafatoon-directed music video for “Ohms”, the title track of the new album from the DEFTONES, can be seen below.

The band’s ninth studio LP will arrive on September 25. The follow-up to 2016’s “Gore” was helmed by Terry Date, who produced such DEFTONES classics as “Around The Fur”, “White Pony” and the group’s self-titled album. It was recorded at Henson Studios in Los Angeles, California, and Trainwreck Studios in Woodinville, Washington.

“Ohms” track listing:

01. Genesis
02. Ceremony
03. Urantia
04. Errorr
05. The Spell Of Mathematics
06. Pompeji
07. This Link Is Dead
08. Radiant City
09. Headless
10. Ohms

DEFTONES singer Chino Moreno told Kerrang! magazine that “Ohms” was a more collaborative effort than “Gore”, which saw guitarist Stephen Carpenter largely excluded from the production process.

“When you’ve made a lot of records with the same people, everybody has to be engaged,” Moreno said. “We’ve learned the hard way. A perfect example would be ‘Gore’, when Stef basically admitted, like, ‘I didn’t have much to do with this record.’ And that was not because we didn’t want him — my favorite ideas of DEFTONES songs are ones that he spearheads.”

He added: “When the record came out, I think people felt that Stef wasn’t as big a part of it and that it may have suffered in certain areas because of that, so one of the most important things [with the new album] is that everybody is engaged and everybody is excited.”

DEFTONES have released eight studio albums to date and have sold over ten million albums worldwide. The band is Moreno, Carpenter, drummer Abe Cunningham, programmer Frank Delgado and bassist Sergio Vega.

This past May, DEFTONES postponed their 2020 North American tour due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping the globe. The Live Nation-produced 20-date trek with GOJIRA and POPPY was scheduled to kick off on July 27 and conclude on September 5.

“Gore” bowed at No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 in 2016, moving over 71,000 units first week and marking DEFTONES‘ highest chart position in 13 years.

Stream the New Deftones Song, “Ohms,” Right Now!!

Finally, it’s here: after a full week of teasing through the use of subtle online clues, brief videos and a giant friggin’ highway billboard, the new Deftones song, “Ohms,” has arrived! If you wanna get technical about it, the band have been teasing this moment for nearly two years.

“Ohms” is the title track of the band’s new album, which will arrive on September 25. Give it a spin below and let us know what you think in the comments.

Frontman Chino Moreno recently said that guitarist Stephen Carpenter was much more “engaged” this time around than on their 2016 album, Gore, with drummer Abe Cunningham adding that “Stephen’s guitar tone is so damn thick” on the lead single. Carpenter had said about the previous album that he “wasn’t too interested” in the material the other band members brought to the table, explaining “It wasn’t the style or the sound I was hoping we would take. It wasn’t what I was expecting or wanting.”

Deftones had a summer tour planned with Gojira and Poppy, but that was rescheduled to 2021 in light of the ongoing pandemic.
