Deftones have confirmed that they have started work on their new album.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, frontman Chino Moreno said that the rest of the group have begun work on their eighth LP, though he was yet to hear what they had come up with. "The other guys started last week – I'm excited to hear what they've done so far," said Moreno.

Speaking about the sound of the follow-up to 2012's 'Koi No Yokan', Moreno added: "We don't plan on what kind of record we're going to make. We react to each other – one guy starts playing something then the other guy reacts to it, and the other guys react to that. Next thing we know, we have a song. I think that's the best, organic way to write music. Its worked for us over the years."

Deftones will play this year's Sonisphere festival, which will take place in Knebworth Park between July 4 and 6. Iron Maiden and Metallica make their only UK festival appearances at the event and The Prodigy will headline on July 4. Frank Turner, Limp Bizkit, Anthrax, Dropkick Murphys, The Sisters Of Mercy, Carnifex, Devin Townsend, Silverstein, The Virginmarys, Voodoo Six and Chas & Dave will also play, as will Alice In Chains and Slayer plus Dream Theater, Mastodon, Airbourne, Ghost, Gojira and Karnivool. The Knebworth bash was cancelled in 2012 and 2013 but returns this year.
