Death Valley High will be releasing a new EP titled “Duel” on August 23.

A teaser for the EP can be found below:

Death Valley High commented:

“‘DUEL‘ is our equivalent to the modern age mixtape; it severs the rules of a conventional release. The special part is, that for every song in this compilation, we assigned a specific ‘adversary.’ The whole idea was to go up against our collaborators’ and our own comfort zones. We wanted to prove that doubling down on the friction would spark fires.”

Chino Moreno On New Deftones Material: “We’re Definitely Getting Into Experimental Sort Of Modes”

Chino Moreno recently talked a bit about Deftones’ new material as part of an interview in the latest issue of Kerrang!. According to him, the band are currently “getting into experimental sort of modes.”

Moreno said the following when asked which song or mood from the band’s past best represents the new music they are working on:

“That’s a good question, I don’t know, and it’s hard to say. Where we are with our writing process right now, it’s really difficult for me to put a single look on what we’re doing. It’s morphing every day that we get together and write.

We’re definitely getting into experimental sort of modes, which is the funnest phase that we get into. One of the biggest records in our career is obviously ‘White Pony‘, and it’s our most commercially successful record as well, but that was also one of our most experimental records, especially for the time when it came out. That record, making it was… what’s a good word to describe it? We felt really free.

We basically made whatever we liked, whatever was happening at that moment. It didn’t really go along with what was going on around us, as far as our contemporaries and where other music was.”

He then added the following when asked if that was a reaction against nü-metal:

“Well, at the time, honestly, with bands like Limp Bizkit and Papa Roach and what was to be coined nü-metal or whatever, that was at its height. And we probably made our most un-nü-metal record. I don’t know why we did it. Like I said, we were into experimenting more than we were trying to do something that we felt we already did.

That’s why it’s hard to answer the question about the future and what comes next. But if anything I would say that [I’m reminded of] ‘White Pony‘, that record in general, because it was probably us at our most experimental.”

He also said the following when asked if the current sessions are similar to that time period:

“We’re a little bit in that mode where we’re just trying completely different ways of doing things. And that’s what keeps it fun for us for the most; not really knowing what’s going to became of this, or what type of record we’re making—just letting it kind of happen. It’s been good on that level. That’s the best way I can describe where we’re at, and where we’re going.”
