DEFTONES are already in the beginning stages of the follow up to “Ohms”

According to DEFTONES guitarist Stephen Carpenter, the band has begun talking about the follow-up to their 2020 record “Ohms“.

Carpenter tells CYPRESS HILL vocalist B-Real‘s “The Smokebox show“: “[We’re] getting ready to [work on new material]. Just coming up with ideas at this point, more conversation at the moment than actual doing.”

Bassist Sergio Vega announced earlier this year that he had split with DEFTONES, and he has since been replaced for the band’s live shows with HEAVENS BLADE bassist Fred Sablan. DEFTONES have also brought on a second guitarist, EIGHTFOURSEVEN and HORSENECK‘s Lance Jackman for live performances. It has yet to be confirmed if either Sablan or Jackman are planned to be permanent additions to the group.

Also in the talk with B-Real, the CYPRESS HILL singer brought up his desire to resurrect the band KUSH which featured Carpenter and former FEAR FACTORY members Christian Olde Wolbers and Raymond Herrera. That outfit formed back in 2001 and recorded a single debut album which has still never been officially released. But the leaked cuts off of it are very cool. It would definitely be awesome to get more KUSH material in the days ahead.
