DEFTONES have released the official music video for their new song “Genesis”. The track is the second single from the band’s upcoming ninth album, “Ohms”, which is set to drop on September 25 via Warner.
Speculation of the forthcoming album among fans swept across the media landscape, stoking curiosity as the band’s web site and social platforms went dark. The intrigue continued to rise when they revealed the striking album art on their site with no additional information. Designed by longtime collaborator Frank Maddocks (who also designed the iconic “White Pony” LP cover), the captivating album image of two eyes made up of thousands of white pixels cryptically appeared on a billboard in the cultural hot-spot of Los Angeles on Fairfax Avenue above the landmark restaurant Canter’s Deli with the caption “This Is Our Time…We Devour The Days Ahead.”
Recorded at Henson Studios in Los Angeles, California and Trainwreck Studios in Woodinville, Washington, “Ohms” is an otherworldly body of work meticulously crafted by the five-piece band. It is a magnificent tour de force and their first album in four years since the critically acclaimed “Gore” LP in 2016. The band, which includes Chino Moreno, Frank Delgado, Stephen Carpenter, Abe Cunningham and Sergio Vega, has produced a dense LP with every member firing on all cylinders. The album also boasts a familiar collaborator in veteran producer and engineer Terry Date, who worked on 1995’s “Adrenaline”, 1997’s “Around The Fur” and 2000’s “White Pony”. All of the above assembles and sets the stage to deliver “Ohms”; 10 tracks of raw escapism and unparalleled grooves that have made DEFTONES’ sound singular for over two decades.
“Ohms” track listing:
05. The Spell Of Mathematics
07. This Link Is Dead
08. Radiant City
This past May, DEFTONES postponed their 2020 North American tour due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping the globe. The Live Nation-produced 20-date trek with GOJIRA and POPPY was scheduled to kick off on July 27 and conclude on September 5.
