Deftones recruit ex-Marilyn Manson bassist Fred Sablan
Deftones kicked off their U.S. tour last night (Thursday, April 14) in Portland, Oregon and currently occupying the recently-vacated bassist position is former Marilyn Manson bass player, Fred Sablan.
Longtime Deftones bassist Sergio Vega announced his departure from the band last month.
Whether Sablan remains a touring member or joins the group on a more permanent basis remains to be seen.

Lol these guys can't even be bothered to put in the most minimal amount of effort
But can anyone confirm if the Deftones are okay?
carveyournamein 36 minutes ago But can anyone confirm if the Deftones are okay? This. We need to know the whereabouts and safety of them. They are more important than regular people
Just have the DJ guy fill in the bass parts with a beat machine for crying out loud.
A downgrade from Sergio Vega probably being paid less than Sergio & not considered a permanent member like Sergio. Deftones are the independent contractor hirer of bands. Maricon pendejo Chino!
"Eh, just ask each of Manson's previous 25 bass players and pick the guy who will do it cheapest." SUCH AN INSPIRED CHOICE.
Does rita moreno still get shitfaced and piss themselves on stage?
^about half as much, as we post rhetorical questions on a hardcore/metal forum board.
Deftones haven't been rap metal in nearly 20 years, but to answer your question, yes - rap metal is coming back
I never listened to this band because I saw turntables. To urban for me.
All that bawatiba stuff and Adidas tracksuits was too much.for me as well. I saw them on tour with system of a down and puya and dude whips out a djembe. It was embarrassing
YO DANNY DIABLO AKA LORD EZEC HERE. CHINO YOU BETTER CHILL WITH TALK ABOUT MY BOY SERGIO VEGA. YOU GOT A NEW BASSIST, SO LET IT GO AT THAT.
Dj? This is the band that wears masks and hits beer kegs? Hard pass. f*ck rap metal
out of all the nu metal heap to sort through how did these hacks make it out on the other side
I hope the singer's Crohn's disease doesn't flare up for their next tour.
This band was better when they were called Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E
I could never get into deftones because of all the slap bass.
E-Town Concrete is from New Jersey and gives the state an extremely BAD Name.-there has been a plethora of great bands from the garden state.(Endeavor-Major Burns-Human Remains-Burnt By The Sun-basically any band Not affiliated with Back to Basics Records.)
