GetConnected.com connects Deftones fans to Chi Cheng and Frank Delgado:
“The music of the Deftones appeals to many tribes: metalheads, rock fans, and indie geeks alike. We hired a spy to follow them in the studio to film them recording their new album, but the clever group spotted our operative’s hidden camera. Luckily, they agreed to embrace technology and give us a peek into their world with video footage taken with their trusty Nokia 6230 phones. We also had a brief chat with Deftones bassist Chi Cheng and turntablist Frank Delgado on the experiences of making their new record — look for it later this summer — and learned that not only are they great at rocking and screaming, but they can be grade-A smart-alecks too!

Get Connected: What can a listener expect to hear on the new record? Is there anything on the new record that you think will surprise long-time listeners?
Frank: Good ol’ Deftones mixed bag of tricks.
Chi: The Hall & Oates guest appearance.
GC: You’re working with Bob Ezrin, who produced amazing classic albums with Kiss, Pink Floyd, Alice Cooper and Lou Reed. What is it like working with such an esteemed producer?
Frank: Working with Bob has been a great experience. We feel honored and are happy to have him involved with this record.
GC: He is definitely of the old guard. Is it different working with such a venerable personality?
Frank: It’s always different when working with someone else, whether it’s other musicians, p
GC: You’ve recorded all your albums so far with Terry Date. What made you decide to go with Ezrin this time?
Frank: We had all decided to work with someone new for this record. After meeting with a list of producers, we chose Bob. We just clicked and all had the same vision of what we wanted to accomplish.
GC: Has the conception of this album been difficult or relatively easy? Please describe its gestation.
Frank: Making records has never really been an easy process for us. We’ve never been one of those bands that write 30 songs and pick the best 10,11 tracks to use. We tend to edit ourselves along the way [and] usually only end up with a little over an album’s worth of material. In turn making things longer and harder on ourselves.
GC: You have just finished a mini-tour. Did you test out some of the new songs on the road?
Frank: We actually never played any new songs. Shucking and jiving the bootleggers is hard work. Ha!”
