Deftones Release 'Leathers' as Free Download

Deftones Release 'Leathers' as Free Download -

The first Deftones track to be released since 2010's 'Diamond Eyes' LP is now available as free download. 

'Leathers' is taken from the band's upcoming new album 'Koi No Yokan' which is due out on November 12 via Reprise Records.

"We've just got in a room and jammed out ideas like we did on the last album," says drummer Abe Cunningham of the recording sessions (via Metal Hammer).

"We'd go in and come up with all these funky ideas in a room together instead of sending ideas to each other's mp3s while we're in different parts of the country. It gets you excited, like it felt when we were kids in a garage!"

"These sessions have also been helped by Sergio [Vega] feeling more at home as part of the band," he adds whilst talking of the replacement for founding bassist Chi Cheng, who was left in a coma after a car crash in 2008.

"He's more at ease and feels comfortable in contributing music and ideas this time out. It's been great seeing him feel like he can say what he wants to say, which was maybe not the case the last time around."
