Deftones frontman Chino Moreno has been keeping very busy while sidelined from the road by the COVID-19 pandemic. Last year, there was a stunning new 'Tones LP, Ohms, and a 20th anniversary edition of White Pony complete with a companion-piece remix album, Black Stallion, plus the first music from Moreno's side project Crosses in six years, a cover of Cause & Effect's "The Beginning of the End."
Now, to kick off 2021, Moreno appears on rap hit-maker Trippie Redd's first-ever rock album, NEON SHARK vs. Pegasus [Deluxe - Presented by Travis Barker], which was released today (February 19th). In addition to Moreno and Blink 182's Barker, the record also features Machine Gun Kelly and trap-metal artists Scarlxrd and ZilliKami. For his part, Moreno's contribution takes standout song "GERONIMO" to shimmering alt-rock heights reminiscent of Deftones' mellower, more shoegazing excursions. Listen above.
