Alice in Chains’ Jerry Cantrell on new Deftones album

Posted by on May 11, 2015

The Deftones and Alice in Chains toured together back in 2010, on the Black Diamond Skye tour with Mastodon. Now they’re getting a little closer, as Deftones vocalist Chino Moreno, “spilled the beans,” in a video interview (below) on the special guest on their newest album.

Said Moreno about the guest guitarist,

“Jerry (Cantrell) is on the [new Deftones] album. I didn’t know if he wanted anybody to know or not. But I guess I’ve just spilled the beans. But he came in… There’s this one track that… in the demo stages of it, I was, like, ‘There’s this hole in there…'”

After sending in a demo, Cantrell came into the studio and recorded his part.

“It’s awesome. It’s like you’re hearing a Deftones song, but all of a sudden, a little bit of Alice in Chains seeps its way in there, and it’s kind of neat. I mean, me, as a fan, I was just sitting back and a little tear came out of my eye.”

The new album, their first since 2012’s Koi No Yokan, is tentatively scheduled to come out September 25th, with the band starting a 20-date US tour with Incubus starting in late July.
