DEFTONES Drummer: 'We're All Excited About How This Record Is Taking Shape'

DEFTONES entered a Sacramento, California studio in April 2008 with producer Terry Date (SOUNDGARDEN, PANTERA) and engineer Scott Olson (DEFTONES, UNEARTH) to begin recording the band's sixth studio album, "Eros", tentatively due before the end of the year. The group's drummer Abe Cunningham says, "We're almost finished tracking our record up here at The Spot and we'll head up to Terry's studio in Seattle next month to add the final touches and begin mixing. We're all excited about how this record is taking shape, and can't wait to share it with all of you!"

DEFTONES will headline KUPD's End of Summer Scorcher September 20 in Peoria, Arizona with ALICE IN CHAINS. Tickets go on sale this Saturday, August 2 at all local Arizona Club Tattoo locations. They'll also be available online beginning Monday, August 4 via

The band's last CD, "Saturday Night Wrist", came out in October 2006 and its creation nearly resulted in the DEFTONES' demise. But singer Chino Moreno said, "Our working relationship is better than it's ever been before. As a result, everything has improved — our friendships and our lives. We're all really happy now."
