Published Apr 28, 2016Alt-metal favourites Deftones may have just started the promo cycle behind their new Gore LP, but vocalist Chino Moreno is now also promoting yet another new project. A collaboration with members of Bad Brains, Cro-Mags and more, the newly revealed band are called Saudade.
The new group finds Moreno handling frontman duties, with the rest of the band comprising Bad Brains guitarist Dr. Know, Cro-Mags drummer Maxwell "Mackie" Jayson, avant-jazz keyboardist John Medeski (Medeski Martin and Wood), and Moreno's Crosses partner Chuck Doom. The group have already issued their debut single, also called "Saudade," through BitTorrent.

The release of "Saudade" marks the first music released by Dr. Know since his hospitalization late last year following a heart attack.
