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.”
