Deftones Compile 'B-Sides and Rarities' CD-DVD

Published: 2005-08-30
In an effort to tide over fans until the follow-up to their eponymous 2003 album finds its way to shelves, the Deftones will release a B-sides and rarities collection this fall. Titled with the very self-explanatory name of B-Sides and Rarities, the DVD and 14-track CD package is set to appear on October 4th.

Along with the obvious B-sides and rarities, the record will feature unreleased mixes and a variety of covers, including Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Simple Man," the Cure's "If Only Tonight We Could Sleep," and Sade's "No Ordinary Love." The DVD comes packed with all of the Deftones' music videos and some live footage.

And the package is more than just a money-making scheme for the label. The Deftones actually put some thought into B-Sides & Rarities: all five members of the California metal band put their heads together to compile the record and put pen to paper to write a track-by-track commentary in the liner notes.

Arranged for you by the Deftones, here's the track list of B-Sides & Rarities:

Disc one - CD:
"Wax and Wane" (Cocteau Twins cover)
"Change (In the House of Flies)" (acoustic version)
"Simple Man" (Lynyrd Skynyrd cover)

What has happened to the deftones. Have they gone soft? Where are the constant changing pedals and Chino screaming his head off?

This album is a must for any music fan. Secondly, for all the haters out there that just want to hear Chino screaming..come is about progression not regression. Artists grow and last I checked, Chino can still scream with the best of em'. Just enjoy the music..period.

the label took my footage without permission, and the band did not even thank me. The music is good but the gratitude is sour.
