Just spent an amazing three days in Woodstock, NY working & chilling at @appleheadrecord studio– very honored to have been asked to contribute to @saudademusiccollective, an insanely talented musical coalition comprised of a bunch of very serious, extremely high-level players. Saudade is the brainchild of my buddy, the mad scientist Chuck Doom (aka @tholyghost)- the collective recently put out a beautiful track called “Shadows & Light” featuring my pals @cchelseawwolfe & @chinowmoreno on vocals, so peep that. The track I just laid vocals for features guitar by the man beside me in this photo, the legendary @DrKnowBadBrains (of Bad Brains), bass & other sounds from Chuck Doom AKA @tholyghost (Crosses/Team Sleep), mellotron/keys from @JohnMedeski (Medeski, Martin, & Wood), drums by Mackie Jayson (Cro-Mags), & just plain guitar insanity from @davidmtorn (he’s worked with way too many people to list- let’s just say he’s on several David Bowie albums.) It’s NUTS- I mean, there’s even steel pan drums on the song that belonged to Jaco Pastorius (Doom is a jazz guy & was good friends with Jaco.) Can’t wait to hear a final mix of this and for it to be put out, because the rough I have sounds massive. I mean, just to be on a track with Doc & Mackie is freaking INSANE to me- my inner teenager is losing his mind right now. Plus, I got to do some different stuff than what I normally do with my band, which is always the best feeling- if you’re a really an artist, you do your best to not get yourself painted into a creative corner. That leads to creative stagnation, & stagnation= death. Screw that. Also did some writing for another tune I’ll track later- Applehead Studio is just an amazing place to be be creative (they have freaking goats & a potbellied pig running around- always a bonus.) What a great three days- I just feel grateful & very lucky to be working with musicians of this caliber (shout-out to @cshields12 for getting the ball rolling.) Stay tuned…

Deftones’ Chino Moreno Discusses His New Project Saudade (Bad Brains, Etc.)

Chino Moreno (Deftones) recently offered more information about his new project Saudade, which also features Dr. Know (Bad Brains), John Medeski (Medeski, Martin & Wood), Chuck Doom (Crosses), Mackie Jayson (Cro-Mags, ex-Bad Brains, etc.). He told Team Rock that they have about 12 to 13 songs written, and that they will probably release them all “slowly.”


Moreno said the following:

“Most of it is instrumental. There may be some stuff with me singing on it, but mostly I’m just playing guitar. It’s just fun. At this point it’s not so much a band as a project. These are guys that I admire and I’m lucky to be friends with them – so we made a batch of songs together.”

“Slowly but surely, they will probably come out – but it’s more likely to be something that I leak out or let people hear, as opposed to something we’ll package up and try to sell. That’s not the idea behind it.”
