Deftones/Death Grips Reform Team Sleep For New Album

Nearly ten years ago, Chino Moreno of Deftones fame and Death Grips’ Zach Hill released Team Sleep’s pretty damn good self titled record. Now, they’ve released snippets of two new songs, “Dreamland” and “No”, and announced work on a new album. Listen to the clips above.

In conjunction to this announcement, the band are also inviting their fans to Applehead Recording in Woodstock, NY as part of the Woodstock Sessions. At the sessions the band will host a listening party of new material, a Q&A and a live performance. Those that attend will also receive a CD featuring unreleased music and a vinyl recording of the live performance. It takes place on October 17 and 18.

I wish I lived in New York.

This is what the band had to say about the event:

Dear friends,

Please join us as we create our next record in Woodstock, New York. We’ll gather at Applehead studio, near the base of the Catskill mountains to eat, write, play and record. For a long time, business people, logistics, careers, adulthood, families and the House Republicans have thwarted us, but we’ve continued to make music. At the same time, the creative process has become increasingly fragmented and dehumanized. With that in mind, we’re very excited to get together with our dear friends, hang out, play music and have a unique experience in a beautiful place. We’d like you to be there, too. Your participation will be essential to the independent creation and release of the live performance and our forthcoming studio record; we look forward to seeing you.
