Deftones – “Prayers / Triangles”
We celebrated emotional ’90s metal warriors Deftones when Adrenaline, their first album, turned 20 last year, and it’s only right that we celebrate them again now that they’ve got new music coming out. The band’s last album was 2012’s Koi No Yokan, and now they’ve announced that they’ve got a new album called Gore coming out later this year. The first single is the sprawling, anguished “Prayers / Triangles,” which sounds weirdly of a piece with the best of the recent emo-revival guitar-rock. It builds and builds, and it keeps a powerful melodic swoop no matter how hard its guitars crunch. As Brooklyn Vegan points out, Zane Lowe debuted the song on Beats 1 Radio earlier today, and you can hear it (along with Lowe’s interview with frontman Chino Moreno) and check out a teaser trailer for the album below below.
Gore is out 4/8 on Warner Bros.
