DEFTONES: New Album Cover Posted Online

DEFTONES fan site has uploaded the cover artwork for the band's upcoming album, "Saturday Night Wrist", which is scheduled to come out on Halloween, October 31. The disc will follow up the group's self-titled 2003 effort. Check out the cover at this location.

The group began working on the album with producer Dan "The Automator" Nakamura, before switching to Bob Ezrin and finally finishing with Terry Date, who's been the DEFTONES' regular producer since their debut, and Shaun Lopez (THE REVOLUTION SMILE, ex-FAR) .

DEFTONES guitarist Stephen Carpenter told that the group wasn't sweating the long wait for the new CD.

"There was no specific timetable at all," Carpenter told "We know how we work. We figure we do it at our own pace — sometimes fast, sometimes slow. It's definitely been slow as of late, but our agenda is no agenda, if that makes any sense. [We're] just having a good time."

But Carpenter acknowledged that making "Saturday Night Wrist" was arduous and involved "working with different people in different places and dealing with forces of the unknown."

Vocalist Chino Moreno recorded an album and toured with his other band, TEAM SLEEP, while the DEFTONES were making the new CD.

The DEFTONES are currently on the Family Values tour with KORN, STONE SOUR, 10 YEARS and others. The trek hits Holmdel, New Jersey tonight (Friday, September 1).
