In a recent interview posted online at www.rollingstone.com, DEFTONES bassist Chi Cheng had the following to say about the group's forthcoming CD, Lovers:We definitely want to put out a very energetic, very upbeat, fast album. We've proven that we can musically go in any direction we want, and we want to get kind of heavy on this one. We spent three or four months, each of us, working on our little solo projects and now we're all kind of like, 'These fucking side projects! We need to wrap them up and get back to our main focus, which is the DEFTONES.' Chino's [Moreno, vocalist] is trying to finish TEAM SLEEP [his electronic-minded project]. I don't know how many bands Stephen's [Carpenter, guitarist] got on the side now I can't even keep track. Everyone's trying to get their personal life in order before we jump into the whole mess of an album cycle and touring and everything else.
