Deftones complete new album, plotting fall release

Deftones drummer Abe Cunningham has provided a new update regarding progress on the group's forthcoming album. Speaking with Download presenter Kylie Olsson, Cunningham revealed that producer Terry Date just completed mixing and mastering is now underway:
"We actually tracked everything over the summer, last summer — June and July — we were in the studio tracking. And we're just taking our time. But we actually just completed everything. We were down in L.A. recording, but we mixed up in Seattle. We're working with our old pal Terry Date, who did a bunch of our earlier records. He's up there [in Seattle]. With this while distancing thing, it was a bit rough, but we figured out a way to kind of do the mixes without being there. It's a lot better when we're all in the room, we can knock it out quick and argue and do our things. But, yeah, we just completed that. It's getting mastered right now, and that's been the main thing. So it's been something to do in this strange off time."
Regarding a potential release date, Cunningham said, "maybe September... I heard something. I can't remember." Asked if the new material is "heavier" than previous album, Gore (2016), Cunningham offered this:
"It's all that. It's always hard to describe it. I'll say this... We can't help but sound like ourselves, but just being back with Terry, there's certain sounds that we developed with Terry that kind of became sort of our core sounds, and those are back again."
