Deftones' bassist Chi Cheng has passed away. He was and will continue to be a huge inspiration to everyone who came into contact with him, whether in person or through his music. He will be sorely missed.

After Dark Entertainment (a booking company/show promoter from Buffalo, NY) seems to be teasing at Brand New playing a show or possibly touring. Or maybe they just want to know what time they should play chess. Your guess is as good as mine.

Cartel recently released Collider, and we had a chance to sit down and talk with Will and Joseph a little bit about the past, present, and future of the band. You can check out that interview right here.
Thats it. We put our career in the hands of our fan base. If people want to hear more, they'll buy the record and/or buy a ticket to a show. Beyond that, we have no control. I'd love to continue this as long as possible. Hopefully, a great enough percentage of the folks who have bought our records in the past will do so again and we'll continue on. I don't think we've said everything we have to say or written the songs that would allow us to walk away with no letdown.
