Deftones To Melt Your Ears With The Release Their 8th Studio Album, “Gore” On April 8th

We have loved the power an intensity of the Deftones since they hit the scene in 1988, so when we heard that they are about to release their 8th studio album on April 8th, we raced to pre-order it.

the-deftonesHere is the official press release about the album along with some tour dates.

Multiplatinum, Grammy Award-winning rock band Deftones have announced that they will release their eagerly awaited eighth studio album, entitled GORE, on April 8th via Warner Bros. Records. GORE is available for pre-order beginning today at http://www.deftones.com. Those who pre-order will receive an instant download of the first single, “Prayers/Triangles.” The album was produced by Matt Hyde and Deftones.
