Deftones Cover The Smiths at Coachella, Confirm New Album Is Coming

Deftones took the stage at Coachella on Friday night, delivering a ferocious 12-song set that included a cover of The Smiths’ “Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want.”

During their set, Deftones also performed “Combat,” from 2006’s Saturday Night Wrist, for only the second time ever. They also ran through “Feiticeira,” “Digital Bath,” “Ohms,” “Change (In the House of Flies),” and “My Own Summer (Shove It).” Watch video of Deftones’ Coachella performance and see the full setlist below.

Perhaps even more exciting, Deftones frontman Chino Moreno confirmed in a backstage interview that the group is nearing completion of their next album. As Moreno explained to KROQ, all of the music for the album is recorded and he just needs to finish up the vocals. “We want it to be great. I think that’s most important. But it is coming, and, yeah, it’s really good. We’re really excited with what we’ve been working on,” Moreno remarked. Deftones’ most recent album, Ohms, dropped in 2020.
