Well a lot has changed in the world and the music business since 2016. No point in referencing to earlier release schedules. I think especially now with covid19 it's totally possible we see quick moves.

Also that instagram post was not a promise. To me at least.  It's a picture of a studio / rehearsal space and can be interpreted to mean that they're working on new music in 2019. Which they did.
The label may see no point in releasing an album they canít tour on. I donít think itís very profitable to do it that way for a rock band is it? I really donít know.

I can say it a million times... they're not waiting til May/June 2021 to release an album that's complete.

There's a list of Albums released during the shutdown and continuing to now.... none of those artists can tour their albums, but they're still releasing them.

Thanks for sharing the name of it, I was itching to know what I missed from that interview that got edited.

i'm just gonna assume it's ccoming out in Nov. they're usually a month or 2 off on their release date predictions, so Nov for me is a safe bet. anything sooner is just a bonus. still only 4 months away. not bad

Remember Stef had announced April 8 for Gore, in January. And it did come out on April 8.

I have confidence it'll be out by September since both Abe and Chino said its likely coming out in September.  I'm sure we will get some announcement at the end of July

I still donít understand why they are delaying it at all. Would any less people go to their shows if they didnít wait wait until they can tour this particular record? They already sell out almost all of their shows as it is.

Honestly this waiting shit is old. It is JULY! Album supposed to out in September? My ass. They would need to start promoting it today basically. Anyone else sick of this? Suspense to build hype is one thing. But this is straight up obnoxious

I agree with this. Incoming the band doesnít owe us shit comments.

While I agree with most of this. To act like they havenít been overly optimistic about releases dates is revisionists history,  I think. They routinely predict albums will be finished and will  come out way sooner than they ever do. As far as COVID speeding up things? Itís possible. Maybe even likely. But it can also be the exact opposite. The label may see no point in releasing an album they canít tour on. I donít think itís very profitable to do it that way for a rock band is it? I really donít know.

Fair enough, they have not indeed always met the deadlines  ;D

But the thing is that nowdays it's actually the other way around. The album is your "promotion" for getting the shows booked. That's where the money is now anyways. I personally think they're very close, if not already there, to the point where they don't even need to release new albums to get their shows booked. Ofcourse they keep making new music because that's their thing, lucky us.

If you want the vinyl in stores on the same date as digital it takes time. Pressing plants are the bottleneck of this shit because there are not many of those around anymore. 6-8 weeks is quite normal delivery time. Add shipping to the strores and you got 2 months minimum easily from the point of a finished master (assuming the cover art is finished too). Then there's press promotion to get the date out there. Fans will find the info regardless, it's the potential new fans they want to reach..

I have hope that we'll get some info this week... The guys seems to be a little more active the last couple of days on social media/steaming. They've been pretty quiet for a while, so I'm hoping this means something.

Im just being a little bitch. I fully acknowledge that. But itís now the 16th. Tomorrow is the 17th with likely no news. Monday is the 20th already. So promotion should get rolling. Weíre all sitting around waiting for this shit. We donít need a tour to get hyped up. Drop this shit. Do a surprise album like rappers do. I donít care. Just do something label!

A surprise album drop would be awesome. If a much smaller band like Hum can do it, then so can Deftones. No way in hell it will happen though lol.

  • bitter and then some
A lot of albums are being announced one month prior to release at the moment. We might not get an announcement and single until mid to late August

I am staying on the fence about the 2021 your. Not only is the economy going to take a major hit because lots of people won't to take the risk to attend shows, we don't even know the virus will be killed off by then. You might want to read about what the Lollapalooza co-founder had to say about shows not coming back before 2022 (with which I've agreed all along tbh)

Agree 100%. I'm fine with it. However long it takes for people to be safe at a show. What sucks is that some shows aren't issuing refunds. People may need that money right now. I sold Pearl Jam tickets right before all this happened but the show was cancelled, so StubHub has all of my money until the show happens.

I would still like Deftones to release the album - it would give us all time to digest, and it would give them time to rehearse those songs and maybe play them. Lol.

i'm not real optimistic about the 2021 tour either. i think everything should go back to normal legally, and whoever wants to hide and wear a mask for the rest of their lives are free to do that. but that's not gonna happen, so everything is canceled. i don't think this tour will happen once the date gets close

also does anyone know if Stephen is using a 9 string? or was it just rumor?
