Good news, everyone! Deftones’ much anticipated followup to 2010’s critically acclaimed Diamond Eyes is on the horizon, and we now have a title and a release date! This fall, you will be making love to the sweet sounds of Koi No Yokan, which translates to (according to Google), Premonition of Love, or which is basically the essence of the phrase “love at first sight.” Obviously, not much is known about the album as it stands right now, but the press release offered:

KOI NO YOKAN was recorded in Los Angeles, CA with Nick Raskulinecz (Alice In Chains, Foo Fighters, Rush) who also produced Diamond Eyes. Front man Chino Moreno summed up Deftones‘ sound in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, saying “Obviously we’re an aggressive band – not the heaviest, but there’s a lot of attack. He continues, “But there’s also this lush beauty that flows within everything that we do, and that’s my favorite part of the band. To me, it’s the epitome of what the Deftones do.”

To coincide with the announcement of their new record, they’ve also announced a headlining tour featuring Scars on Broadway. You can see dates for that after the jump. Koi No Yokan will be available November 13th!
