Deftones


The singer does listen to AC/DC and NOFX, but for the most part is bored of bands who release the same album over and over again. That’s why he’s a firm believer in the Steve Jobs approach: to give people what they need before they even know they wanted it.

“I love [AC/DC and NOFX], but most other bands I fall out of love with because they do the same things but they no longer move me or challenge me,” Shadows said. “That’s what we want to do with our band: to move you in ways you didn’t necessarily think you wanted. Maybe you’re a little thrown off at first, but you’ll get into it. And I do use a Mac, yeah!”

The band returns to San Antonio, a place they love to play at, with a fan request.

“Playing in SA is exciting because it’s one of the capitals of metal,” said Shadows. “But I’m also excited about Deftones and I hope people come in early, because [Sweden’s] Ghost [B.C.] is an amazing band. We all have a very nice production and people are going to get blown away by it.”
