CHILDREN OF BODOM guitarist/vocalist Alexi Laiho joined DEFTONES on stage last night (Tuesday, August 30) at Circus in Helsinki, Finland to perform the song "Root". Fan-filmed video footage his appearance can be seen below.
DEFTONES recently began laying the groundwork for its seventh studio release, tentatively due next year. Vocalist Chino Moreno told Billboard magazine that all five members of the group were recording their own ideas already, but that DEFTONES music doesn't really emerge until the full band gets into a room together and starts jamming.
He explained, "We find that when we actually get together in a rehearsal spot where there's no distractions and we can work together cohesively as a band, that's really when we're writing songs."
2010's "Diamond Eyes" has been one of DEFTONES' most successful outings. The set's latest single, "You've Seen The Butcher", was a Top 15 rock radio hit.

DEFTONES will once again record with Sergio Vega on bass. Vega stepped in for touring purposes after original bassist Chi Cheng was left in a semi-comatose state by a November 2008 car accident, and stayed on to record "Diamond Eyes" with the group.
