Deftones frontman Chino Moreno has launched a new project called Palms with three former members of the cult underground metal act Isis. That Boston-based group disbanded after a 13-year career than spanned from 1997 to 2010 and influenced a number of hardcore metal bands. Moreno said in a statement, "Being a huge Isis fan I've always dug the moods these dudes convey with their sound. I am excited to combine my sense of creativity with theirs, and to have fun doing so."


  • The other three members of Palms are drummer Aaron Harris, guitarist Clifford Meyer and bass player Jeff Caxide.
  • Palms' debut album is slated for release sometime in 2012 and will be issued by Isis' former label, Ipecac Recordings, which is owned by Faith No More frontman Mike Patton.
  • Moreno's previous side projects include a 2005 album with Team Sleep as well as two recent EPs with Crosses.


  • Deftones have entered the studio to begin recording their seventh album for release later in 2012. The disc will follow up one of the band's most successful outings, 2010's Diamond Eyes.
  • The group will be opening for System Of A Down on a two-week tour this summer, which will begin on August 2nd in Philadelphia.

LISTENERS' POLL: Should Chino Moreno forget about the side projects and concentrate solely on Deftones?
