Deftones fans should check out a new interview with Chino Moreno from Deftones.  In the exclusive Noisecreep interview Moreno briefly talked about the band's new album Koi No Yokan revealing the album sessions were "a return to basics," and confirmed the band is recording some interesting covers for the album.  The interview also touched on ex-bassist Chi Cheng and with Moreno stating,  "...the main thing we try to do is keep a positive attitude." 

One of the interesting parts of the interview is when Moreno revealed his favorite band is Depeche Mode and he talked about his first ever concert - seeing Depeche Mode on the Violator tour:

"It was at huge amphitheater so it was a really big show. I worked my way up to the front. It was loud, the lights, my favorite band - it was just larger than life. At the time, we hadn't really started the band yet, but it was in my mind then. But the theatrics and power of it really influenced. To me, the sound from their earliest records has always been special. They didn't use typical sounds, they'd sample some strange percussion, unconventional instrumentation. I liked early hip-hop, but to me, this was so much more – the instrumentation, the dark lyrics – and all those things still make Depeche Mode my favorite band, even today."

Read the full interview over at Noisecreep.

Don't miss Deftones on the road this fall (the Detroit show is October 24th at Royal Oak Music Theater) and prepare for their sure-to-be-mindblowing new album Koi No Yokan which drops November 13th.
