DEFTONES: String Quartet Tribute To Be Released In September

A new tribute album to the DEFTONES, entitled "The String Quartet Tribute to the Deftones", will be released on September 19 via Vitamin Records. A description of the product reads as follows: "The rage and haunting beauty that is at the core of DEFTONES sound has been translated into percussive and sweeping arrangements for viola, violin and cello. Melodic numbers like 'Change (In the House of Flies)' and 'Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away)' are taken to an unmatched, ethereal peak, while bruisers like 'Teething' and 'Engine No. 9' are stripped down to their staccato essence. There has never been a tribute like this to DEFTONES. This album doesn’t rearrange what makes these songs great, so much as it emphasizes their very nexus."
