Deftones share ‘Hearts/ Wires’ ahead of new album release

Band will release their eighth album 'Gore' on Friday

Deftones have revealed new song ‘Hearts/ Wires’, the latest track from forthcoming album ‘Gore’.

‘Gore’ is released on Friday (April 8). ‘Hearts/ Wires’ was played on Radio 1’s Rock Show last night (April 3) and is the third song to be revealed from the US band’s album following ‘Doomed User’ and ‘Prayers/ Triangles’.

Deftones have been open about the issues they faced while making ‘Gore’, chiefly that guitarist Stephen Carpenter was not keen on the direction the band were heading in musically. Speaking to Rolling Stone, the metal-loving musician admitted that ‘Hearts/ Wires’ was one of the songs he found hardest to play on.

“That song made me think of Wild Bill the whole time – psycho killer and shit,” he said. “I just didn’t feel it. I had to embrace my inner psycho rapist and come up with the part and get into it.”

Deftones will play a gig at London’s Wembley Arena in June, a date originally scheduled to take place last year but which was postponed following the Paris attacks in November.

The Wembley gig will take place on June 3. This falls directly before the band appear at this year’s Download Festival.

The track-listing for ‘Gore’ is as follows:

‘Acid Hologram’
‘Doomed User’
‘Geometric Headdress’
‘Hearts/ Wires’
‘Pittura Infamante’
‘Phantom Bride’
