Deftones / Re: Album Nine
« Last post by Vesanic on Today at 07:45 PM »
Yeah, just don't. It's pretty cool he's doing these livestreams. I wish he'd talk more Deftones as well, I don't blame him though. I think he's very much aware of how lucky he was to end up in the band, he's never going to take a risk by spilling any beans about a band he wasn't in at first. It's pretty respectful and also very professional.

That said, he's going to be playing bass on tonight's stream. Might be a good time to bring up a couple related topics.

I've tried pressing Sergio a little more on his stream. Not a lot, just a few comments here and there. He isn't giving up anything at all. The way he talks is like some of the shit simply might not even be done yet. Maybe that's just me misinterpreting his non-answers.

One thing I asked was 'Can you at least describe how you feel the album sounds sonically? Maybe just a few adjectives? Chino described it as "upbeat". What might you say?"

He got all serious and was like "Ok, I'm gonna break it down for real and give you the details. Dude, the album has SONGS. And those songs have GUITARS and DRUMS and SYNTHS. All the songs begin and end too!!"

He went on to say he isn't trying to be a dick, he just feels there is something special in anticipation. He said I didn't get on his nerves, but I think maybe I did. So I told him I was sorry and I'd quit asking him anything. He is really just trying to chill and do his DJ thing and be a normal dude on stream obviously. I was hoping he would give anything, anything at all, but it's clear he won't. I know this post is basically the same as the last thing I posted...a lot of nothing. I have nowhere else to talk about it though lol.

That March '98 Astoria video is incredible. Never seen that specific one before.

Sergio has been streaming on Twitch the past couple days. I went and asked him if he could give us any idea on when we might get a single. In a very polite manner, he basically gave a non-answer. Said "art can't be rushed". He also said something along the lines of it's not that he CAN'T say anything, he just doesn't know what to say at this moment. He said "I'm not trying to be cryptic" as well. He finished with something like this (I am paraphrasing) -Even I did know something, you gotta have some secrets in a crazy time like this. With all this access to information at our fingertips, it's nice to know something that not everyone else knows.-

I feel terribly selfish but that answer kind of bums me out. I can't even begin to describe my anticipation for this new album. I was already at full on hype mode, but now with this COVID shit being so fucked up and depressing, a new Deftones track would truly inject some real happiness into my life and many others as well. Fortunately, I know that other fans feel the same way and I know they are taking their time because they want this to be an amazing album to experience. Must remain patient and respect the band and their decisions.

Hope you all are doing alright during quarantine! The wait continues...

Even if the album was done and ready to be promoted, I think the pandemic has really forced them into delaying. You can release a single and album title, release date, etc., sure. But we don't know how long this is going to last. And even when things get better, there very well might be a second wave, resulting in another pandemic. Hard to book tours and festivals promoting your brand new album with that level of uncertainty, especially since touring is such a good source of income over simply album sales.

I mean it definitely sucks, we could all do with some new Deftones music to get excited about. But I understand him not saying anything.
Cool, thanks for the link. My fat head is in the video, btw. XD
