Deftones debuted a brand new song called Rosemary during a private show yesterday afternoon (Friday, July 27) at Warner Bros. Records in Burbank, California. Check it out below:

The song is likely to appear on the band's forthcoming follow-up to 2010's masterpiece Diamond Eyes, and will see an Oct. 9 release.

Also check out a ferocious new track called "Roller Derby," debuted Saturday in Los Angeles, over at Antiquiet.

During a tour through South America with his other band Crosses back in Spring, frontman Chino Moreno spoke to Chilean news portal La Tercera about the upcoming release. The new LP’s writing process was completed last in late March, with recording following soon after.

Commenting the sound of the new material, he set the bar pretty high for what's to come: “I know everybody says this, but I believe this is the best record we’ve made," Moreno offered. "I’m very enthusiastic, because it sounds futuristic in comparison to our last one, so it feels like a step forward.”

He added that it holds more resemblance to 2000′s White Pony, when compared to their previous work: “The songs are very different from each other, not heavier or slower, but more dynamic, going towards several directions; it’s heavy, but beautiful.” 

We'll keep you posted on updates as the release nears…
