Multiplatinum, Grammy Award-winning rock band Deftones have announced that they will release their eagerly awaited eighth studio album, entitled GORE, on April 8th via Warner Bros. Records.

GORE is available for pre-order beginning today at Those who pre-order will receive an instant download of the first single, “Prayers/Triangles.” The album was produced by Matt Hyde and Deftones.

Says Deftones singer Chino Moreno of the album: “Out of respect for Pac, Big, Stevie, Michael, Hendrix, GORE is ONE of the greatest albums not the greatest, just one of."

In addition, the Deftones music store will be offering an exclusive and limited edition, 180 gram, double LP vinyl version of GORE. This will be limited to 3,500 foil-stamped and numbered gatefold jackets and is available for pre-order here:

Deftones will hit the road in the spring, starting with a March 5th headline performance on night two at Travis Barker’s Musink Festival — a three-day tattoo convention, car show, and concert in California, followed by appearances at this year’s SXSW music festival. May and June will find Deftones appearing at major festivals in the U.S. and Europe, including Carolina Rebellion, Rock on the Range, Rock AM Ring, Rock IM Park, and Download Festival, among others as well as a solo-headline show at Wembley Arena.
