DEFTONES' video for their new single, "Romantic Dreams", off their latest album, "Koi No Yokan", can be seen below. The clip was directed by skater and filmmaker Brett Novak, and features fellow skater Jason Park.
Stated DEFTONES frontman Chino Moreno: "When we started this record cycle, we decided that we didn't want to make any videos whatsoever. They're not much fun to make and they usually turn out pretty corny. But this was an idea that we were interested in because we're all very keen skateboarders and we like the idea of marrying one of our songs to someone as talented as Jason Park."
According to The Pulse Of Radio, Moreno believes that the band should and will release "Eros", the album it recorded before late bassist Chi Cheng was left in a semi-comatose state by a car accident in November 2008. Although Moreno was not sure if the disc would ever surface, his feelings have changed since Cheng's death this past April. Moreno told MTV Hive, "I get asked about that record a lot. For a while, I was giving the same answer, 'No, no, no, no, no, no, no.' After Chi's passing, I went back and listened to some of the record and it was a pretty intense experience to say the least."
Moreno added, "I think it should be released, but we don't have any definite plans. There's some work to do on it. DEFTONES have been moving forward in a strong, positive motion, so for us to stop and reflect on something five years ago, I don't know if we're ready for that."
But he also said, "It is a special thing for us: it's the last thing Chi played on. It will see the light of day. I just don't know when."
Moreno's new side project, PALMS, released its self-titled debut disc on June 25.
Cheng performed on DEFTONES' first five albums, with his last released work being on 2006's "Saturday Night Wrist".
Bassist Sergio Vega played on "Diamond Eyes" and the most recent DEFTONES disc, "Koi No Yokan".
