Deftones frontman Chino Moreno told NBC7 that his band has been working on a new album for around a year now adding “This summer we actually went into the studio and recorded an album’s worth of music.

Fans have been saying “about time” after many thought the band would release new music this year based on an Instagram post last year. Moreno, however, did promise a new album in 2020.

Moreno wouldn’t give an exact release date, saying that the band’s priority is making sure the music’s good. He also mentioned that they’ll be on the road for two or three years to support the record, which sounds like the band will be ready to tour next year, too.

Which bands take the longest time to put out new music? Do you think the length of recording an album is related to the quality of its music?
