- Instruments are probably done
- Vocals aren't done
- They're working on it all afternoon every day
- They're doing it in a famous LA studio
- They're trying to make this one count
- They're using an old approach
- There is a tentative release month

Bet you didn't know that.

Sure, there's new info on the story but nothing can be verified yet

Yeah so obvious

I asked him directly if Terry was producing it and he stopped answering. Didn't answer to the comments asking the same thing. So maybe?



Pretty sure it is about suicide bombers. While Chino's lyrics often stay far from such topics, the self-titled was their first release after 9/11, which inspired most artists in the whole world. I don't see Chino being an exception. They started writing in 2002 if I'm correct, while 9/11 was in 2001.

"Paint the streets in white" = The dust and smoke from a collapsed building recovering the nearby streets.

"Death is the standard breach for a complex prize" = Islamist terrorists are promised to be forgiven for their suicide if it was done to fight the infidels, and will get their supposed heavenly reward.

"I think it's sweet of you, and your parents are proud" = Chino mocks the terrorists and their blind mistaken following of the family tradition.

"But I would expect it from anyone now to protect life's indigenous sound" = Chino admitting the terrorists see the western culture as a threat to the natural law and they are trying to preserve it.

"Worship, play" = Follow and pray to your god, join the religious game.

"How the streets they swell..." = The crowds nearby the attack growing in size and packing up the streets...

"...while the animals make their way through te crowd" = ...and more suicide bombers infiltrate the civilians.

"If you keep listening, you can hear it for miles" = The sound of death and destruction is loud and unmistakable, you can hear it everywhere in the world.

"God I'd trust everyone quicker with every faint smile" = Chino confesses to being naive and can't make the difference between a normal person and a terrorist in disguise.

"And the crowd goes wild" = Reference to crowds at live shows to make the listener think of the panicked people in the streets running and screaming after an attack.

"And the camera makes you seasick" = Footage of TV news investigating terrorist attacks on site is often shaky and makes the audience dizzy.

"God it's so sweet of you, I know you're proud" = Chino here plays the role of a terrorist trying to reassure themselves about what they're doing, by reminding themselves that their god would want this and is on their side.

"And the car bomb quick clicks, clicks, faint smile" = Not sure about the order of thought here. I guess Chino makes a statement about the sneaky side of the bomb placement.

"It's the same sound" = Not sure about this. Chino making a connection between the heaviness of the song and the loudness of the attack?

"And the crowd goes wild, and the camera makes you seasick" = See above.

"God it's so sweet of you, you know I'm proud" = Again, Chino plays the role of the terrorrist who says to their god they feel no remorse, and they are glad to preach this way.

"And the car bomb quick clicks, clicks with the same sound. It's the same sound, with the same sound." = The car bomb exploding is sonically similar to Deftones playing heavy and Chino screaming almost in agony.

"Hexagram, hexagram, hexagram, hexagram" = Probably a reference to the seal of Solomon, a symbolic hexagram that gave Solomon the power to control good and evil and the ability to converse with animals. "

Tell me you believe in this too! lol

When do you all think we'll get a single or a teaser? I don't think we'll get anything before new Tool drops.

Probably just before/around Dia De Los Deftones, presuming that's an annual thing. If that information about them recording in May/June is correct and Chino does still need to do his vocals then it can't be much earlier. Presumably the single release will go with the album campaign announcement so it'll all have to be ready. And they are usually slow as shit getting it all ready.

My guess: October single release, January/February album release.

And if Chino is quoted with an estimated release date, add five months to it.

I'm hoping we get a single in late August, but it will probably be around October.
