DEFTONES Album Reportedly Pushed Back

Launch Radio Networks report: The DEFTONES have now reportedly set October 3 as the release date for the band's long-awaited fifth album, according to various online sources, although neither the group's web site nor its record label have confirmed the new date. DEFTONES guitarist Stephen Carpenter recently told Launch that the CD, which has been in the making for two years, was nearly finished. "I wanna say it's sitting at that, like, 95 percentile, you know what I mean?" he said. "The only reason I can't give you the 100 percent done on it is 'cause I haven't heard all the songs with all the vocals, you know. The vocals have been the last of what needs to be done, and as far as I know, Chino's (Moreno, singer) been working the vocals every day so far, so I mean, I just haven't heard the completed stuff."

A title for the new DEFTONES CD has yet to be determined, although a song called "Hole In The Earth" is the tentative first single.

The band's fourth effort, its last collection of all-new material, came out in 2003.

KORN and the DEFTONES will begin the Family Values tour on July 27 in Virginia Beach, with STONE SOUR, FLYLEAF and DIR EN GREY joining them on the main stage. Second stage acts have not been confirmed.
