Deftones have officially begun tracking their seventh studio album as of today. The picture above was uploaded by the band via their facebook page. Guitarist Stephen Carpenter has stated that once again he will use 8 string guitars on the new currently untitled album. Front-man Chino Moreno states that the album sounds "futuristic" in comparison to their previous effort Diamond Eyes and is the best material that they have written to date. Bassist Chi is still in hospital recovering from a three year long coma and will not be apart of this release that is expected to drop in the fall.
