We recently gave Deftones' live show a rave review, so we're happy to report that the long-running metal act have a live compilation on the way.

This news comes via frontman Chino Moreno, who confirmed on Nikki Sixx's Sixx Sense radio show [via Blabbermouth] that Deftones are assembling archival live tracks from throughout the band's career for a vinyl release.

"We're putting out a live vinyl set," he said. "For every record, we're going to put out like four or five songs from that time, that era. So I've been going through all these tapes from '95-'96 and they're hard to listen to. Like, seriously, I really feel we've gotten better as a band and me as a vocalist."

There's no word as to exactly when the live set will be released, but keep your eyes peeled for announcements, and listen to the interview at the bottom of this page. Deftones are evidently vinyl enthusiasts, since they released a vinyl box set back in 2011.

The band will be touring extensively in the coming months. The outing includes Canadian stops in Toronto and Montreal. See the schedule below.
