As you may recall, Deftones recently hinted that they were working on some new music. Frontman Chino Moreno has now confirmed those hints, stating in a new interview that they currently have "six or seven songs" thus far. Moreno had this to say via an interview with Rock.com.ar (rough translation via ThePRP):

"There are six or seven songs, which are still mutating. They are very powerful, and I am anxious because, as I told you before, it has been a collaborative process. I think all our albums were postcards of what we were going through at each moment. Either with 'Adrenaline' (1995), we were boys, with 'White Pony', we had matured a little, with 'Diamond Eyes' (2010) or with which we are recording. Everyone has their own feeling, because it belongs to an era. Today we are older guys, I suppose, but we still enjoy making songs with marked riffs, cool melodies and a lot of groove. It is fun."

Within the same interview, Moreno made it clear that guitarist Stephen Carpenter has been actively participating in the writing process, unlike Deftones' previous record, Gore:

"We really want Stephen to have a strong role on all the albums, but in this case ['Gore'] it did not turn out the way we wanted. Most of his problems were not about Deftones, but about personal things. The best part is that now we are writing songs for the new album, and unlike 'Gore', it's been a joint effort."

A release schedule for the album has yet to be established.
