“Ohms”, the latest Deftones album, was reviewed here at Stagazed Magazine. The band has also marked the 20th anniversary of their seminal “White Pony” album with a companion disc of remixes and reimaginations, entitled “Black Stallion” and featuring contributions from The Cure’s Robert Smith, Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda, DJ Shadow, and more.
Deftones has now launched a video for “Ceremony”. It was directed by Leigh Whannell, writer and director of “Upgrade” and the 2020 blockbuster “The Invisible Man”. Watch it here:
“When Leigh tweeted that he was a fan, we immediately thought it would be cool to collaborate with him given the chance. We’re fans of his as well, so it made sense that we should reach out. One moment we’re DM’ing each other on Twitter, and the next we’re on set making Ceremony. This has always been the best way for us to collaborate: organically, collaboratively and in this case, expeditiously. We hope everyone enjoys it as much as we had making it.” – Chino Moreno
“I’ve been a huge Deftones fan for over twenty years and have always admired the devotion they have dedicated to every aspect of their art – from music videos to album covers to their cryptic and intriguing lyrics. To get a chance to be a part of that art was a dream come true.” – Leigh Whannell
