It seems like California band, the Deftones have been on a tear lately. Just yesterday they managed to squeeze in a performance at famed L.A. music store Amoeba Music (which you can watch here courtesy of Blabbermouth.net) and earlier this month (April) they released their highly anticipated eighth album, Gore. Reviews for the new record have been strong, and now the band have shared the first music video from the album, for lead off single, “Prayers/Triangle”.
Reminiscent of a certain music product’s ad campaign (or a recent U2 music video) the “Prayers/Triangle” video sees the band perform while psychedelic layers of colours and shapes flow over and around them.
Watch video for “Prayers/Triangle” below:
Additionally the band also recently spoke with Rolling Stone exclusively about the experience of shooting the music video, and while the finished product turned out great, it sounds like the band doesn’t enjoy the process all that much.
Lead singer Chino Moreno said, “It’s one of the worst things – It’s acting like you’re playing your song.” Guitarist Stephen Carpenter echoed those sentiments by saying simply that making a music video is “corny as hell.”
Watch the band persevere through the making of their “Prayers/Triangle” music video below in a behind the scenes clip:
As mentioned above, the very strong Gore is now available via Reprise Records.
