Deftones frontman Chino Moreno has spoken for the first time about his new side-project Crosses.

“It’s really minimal and soothing and it’s sort of like the stuff I like listening to when I’m not screaming my head off,” he said.


Moreno added that the band “don’t have any plans to play live, but we might release a series of EPs on our own on the net.”

He also spoke about the Deftones covers album, which the band are releasing for Record Store Day.

“We’ve talked about playing a certain record in certain cities,” he said. “We’re going to get into some of those songs and see what happens.”
