The DEFTONES have returned with their new single and dystopian music video called ‘Ohms‘. The band’s long-awaited new album ‘Ohms’ marks a follow to their 2016’s offering Gore and arrives September 25th via Warner Records.
Chino Moreno commented for NME magazine:
“As the last song on the record, it’s kind of sung in retrospect – it’s looking back not just at the batch of songs that come before it, but our lives and our surroundings. The verses are reflecting, but the chorus kind of says, ‘Yes this, but this‘ – it’s saying that time will change with the decisions we make. It’s a question and an answer.
The very first line of the song is ‘We’re surrounded by debris of the past’. That’s not directly about one thing. It could be about an experience or a relationship, but honestly in my mind I was thinking about the environment, the world and the Earth. The chorus is saying that we’re going to remain here together and nothing’s going to change that.
It’s a dichotomy of reflecting on negative things, but coming out of it optimistic.”
Ohms’ cover was designed by White Pony artist Frank Maddocks and features the image of two eyes made up of thousands of white pixels. Check it out below, along with the full track listing:
