In a newly made post via their Instagram, they let the hashtags do the talking, including ‘#2019’, ‘#newmusic’, ‘#deftones’ and ‘#sacramento’.
Deftones last album, Gore, came in 2016. It was the band’s first LP in roughly four years and debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 with 69,000 traditional units.
In August, the band posted two photos on Instagram of guitarist Stephen Carpenter in the studio, sparking rumours that new music was on the horizon.
The pictures also sparked intrigue amongst fans due to Carpenter having notoriously felt left out of Gore’s writing process. “When we were coming up with ideas and writing the songs, the stuff that was being written, you know, the other guys’ ideas, I wasn’t too interested in it,” he told Ultimate Guitar. “It wasn’t the style or the sound I was hoping we would take. It wasn’t what I was expecting or wanting,”
With the band currently having no upcoming dates announced, it would certainly seem that they intend to focus on new material over the months to come.
