Deftones/Death Grips Offshoot Team Sleep Reunite for New LP
Published Sep 23, 2014Close to 10 years after Deftones leader Chino Moreno and the rest of his Team Sleep delivered their self-titled debut, the side-project have revealed plans to make another LP.
News arrived earlier this month that the band, which also includes Hella/Death Grips drum wonder Zach Hill, are getting ready to make their sophomore set and have started up a crowd-sourcing PledgeMusic campaign to help get the project off the ground. They'll be hitting Woodstock, NY's Applehead studio to track the record next month.
"For a long time, business people, logistics, careers, adulthood, families and the House Republicans have thwarted us, but we've continued to make music," the band said in a joint statement. "At the same time, the creative process has become increasingly fragmented and dehumanized. With that in mind, we're very excited to get together with our friends, hang out, play music and have a unique experience in a beautiful place."
It's further explained on PledgeMusic that one fundraising incentive is a chance to catch a recording session between October 17 and 18, when they'll also be doing a Q&A. That will cost a fan $568, with which you'll get a ticket into the studio and land yourself both a 180-gram vinyl pressing of the album and a digital copy. Other incentives in the package include hoodies and T-shirts, as well as a bunch of other extra goodies.
So far, the outfit have unveiled snippets of new tunes "No" and "Dreamland" in a YouTube clip, which you'll find down below.
