DEFTONES have set "The Late Great Planet Earth" as the first single from their forthcoming CD, due on May 20 through Maverick Records. The band are due to begin filming a video for the track with an as-yet-undisclosed director next week. Other rumored songtitles include "White Women", "Up On Blocks" and "Hexogram". In other news, DEFTONES frontman Chino Moreno confirmed during an appearance on U.K.'s BBC Radio One Tuesday night (March 18) that the upcoming CD will likely be a self-titled affair but indicated that this may change and has been kept under wraps because they didn't want the record's potential name to sound old upon release. He also went onto say that he is entering the studio next month with his side project TEAM SLEEP to complete three new songs that will presumably surface on the band's long-awaited debut album, due later in the year. It also seems that both TEAM SLEEP and DEFTONES will have fresh music included on the upcoming "Matrix: Reloaded" soundtrack, which is set to be released next month.(Thanks: www.thedeftones.com)
