Just off the tails of announcing a new album coming from Deftones, tentatively in September, there is news of a remix album that the band is currently working on. The new remix album will be based off of their 2000 White Pony and will be named Black Stallion.
The idea to have an album that is dedicated to remixes is not a new idea. Band member Frank Delgado said, “We would talk about our new record, how good it was going to be and we’d immediately jump to, ‘It’s going to be so good, we’re going to have DJ Shadow remix it and we’ll call it Black Stallion.”
Deftones launched a Twitch Livestream series this past April to celebrate the new release of their album, which is yet to be announced with a concrete date. With the 20th anniversary of the album coming up this Saturday, June 20th and a tentative album release, even though COVID-19 has put a damper on many artists plans, the Deftones are still chugging along the music train.
Some of the plans that the Deftones had was an upcoming tour in 2021 that has been postponed until further notice. The drummer Abe Cunningham was just interviewed about a potential EP being released including their original late bassist Chi Cheng. The bassist was in a bad car accident that left him in a coma. Cheng had passed not long after he had started to come out of his coma. You also will be able to see Deftones on YouTubes Download Festival. There is still much to come from Deftones.
