California alt-metal heavy hitters Deftones have announced in an interview that they will begin work on material for the new album these next couple of weeks.

Band frontman Chino Moreno says, “We’re going to have a month off [from touring], but in that month we’re talking about going in and starting to write again, maybe even two or three weeks in a rehearsal spot just recording ideas and keeping it going,” he said. “[The process will resume in September] so if all goes well hopefully we’ll have some product for early next year. Everyone has their own kind of little recording devices and are putting down ideas, but with a band like us we find that when we actually get together in a rehearsal spot where there’s no distractions and we can work together cohesively as a band, that’s really when we’re writing songs. Even at sound check we’ll jam and do things, but it’s not like we ever stop and say, ‘Okay, let’s keep going on this,’ because there’s so many distractions. So we’re not that good at working on the road. When we get home and we actually seclude ourselves in a little room, that’s when it will start.”

Deftones’s  latest “Diamond Eyes” was released in 2010 via Warner Brothers
