Deftones’ Chino Moreno Says His Crosses (†††) Project Is In Its “White Pony” Era

During a recent interview with NME, Chino Moreno (Deftones) and Shaun Lopez (Far) opened up about the future of Crosses (†††). According to Moreno, the project is currently in its “White Pony” era.

Moreno said the following:

“To use Deftones as an analogy: when we did our first record, we were just trying to figure out what the hell we were doing, ‘Around The Fur‘ was us getting some confidence and success with that, then when we made ‘White Pony‘ that was us saying, ‘We can do anything now’.

People liked what we did and we had the freedom to expand. That’s where we’re at with Crosses now. We’ve shown what we can do, so now it’s like, ‘Check this out!’”

He also added:

“I’d like [Crosses] to coexist with life in general. Deftones don’t have much on the horizon other than doing some writing. There’s no high pressure. I like the idea of those guys writing sans my presence. For now, we’re pretty focused on this. I know Shaun has some other stuff he’ll be working on, but we’re pretty dedicated to diving in and seeing how deep we can go with this next year.”

Chino Moreno Says Deftones Are “Chipping Away On Some New Music”

During a recent interview with Noise11.com, Deftones frontman Chino Moreno confirmed that the band are working on new material. He said the following:

“We’re just chipping away on some new music — those [other] guys are, at least, at the moment. We have some sporadic shows over the next couple of years, or a year or so, whatever. But for the most part, yeah, we’re just kind of winding down and taking some time off, for the most part.”
