Deftones singer composes score for episode of horror series
Deftones frontman Chino Moreno has composed the score for a new episode of the Hulu original horror anthology series Into The Dark. The April Fools’ Day-themed segment, titled “I’m Just F**king With You,” will premiere on Friday, April 5th.
The episode tells the story of a man and his sister on the way to a family wedding, who endure a night of increasingly frightening practical jokes during a one-night stay at a secluded motel. Into The Dark is a monthly horror anthology featuring 12 super-sized episodes inspired by a holiday.
Deftones are working on their ninth studio album, which is slated to arrive in 2019. Moreno told us a while back it’s always encouraging to see the fan response whenever the band gets back to work: “That’s something that we’re really appreciative of, that we’ve been a band as long as we have and after this much time — especially with this, you know, taking a year and a half or two years between records — that, you know, people are still there and eager to hear us and see us again. So yeah, we’re very appreciative of that and it’s nothing that we take for granted at all.”
Moreno recently sang on the track “Structure of Love II” from the Australian death-pop duo Vowws, and released a solo single, “Brief Exchange,” last year as part of the Dark Nights: Metalcompilation.
