Chino Moreno
Holy. Fucking. Shit.

Anytime the Deftones book studio time is reason to celebrate. And that’s just what I will do. I will celebrate with a drink or few, sex, and sleep. That’s how my night’s going to play out, kids.

Newly-married Chino Moreno, the band’s frontman, tells a Chilean Web site that the Deftones have completed pre-production on their seventh album. In fact, they finished just this past week.

The Deftones will enter the studio on July 9 to begin recording the effort for a late 2012 release.

Yes, folks — we will get a new Deftones album before the end of the year. I’m fucking so psyched I may just have to punch myself in the nuts a few times…just so I calm down.

“I know everyone says this, but I think it will be the best album we’ve recorded,” Moreno says. “I am very excited about because it sounds futuristic compared to our last album, Diamond Eyes, so it feels like a step forward.”

I can’t wait. I can’t wait. I can’t wait. There — I said it. I love the Deftones; in my opinion, they have never released a shitty album.
