According to Hits Daily Double, DEFTONES' new album, "Saturday Night Wrist", is poised to sell between 70,000 and 80,000 copies in the United States during its first week of release to land in the Top 20 of The Billboard 200 chart. The final first-week numbers will be released on Wednesday, November 8.

DEFTONES began work on the disc with PINK FLOYD, ALICE COOPER and JANE'S ADDICTION producer Bob Ezrin, but that relationship did not pan out and the band parted ways with Ezrin in the midst of recording.

"Saturday Night Wrist" follows DEFTONES' self-titled 2003 album and includes the new single "Hole in the Earth".

The group will be featured on the Family Values Tour 2006 CD and DVD, which are both due out on December 26.

DEFTONES began a headlining U.S. tour last week and plays tonight (November 2) in Seattle. The band recently added new dates in five cities, including a second night in Los Angeles on November 10, a Las Vegas show on November 11, a San Antonio stop on November 18, a Boston gig on December 1 and a New York concert on December 5.

please don't include thrash in anything uncluding SOAD. I'm hating on them or anything, I don't like them anymore personally. They got way over played. As for this topic, I don't have the CD but I'm thinking about seeing them live. I've heard from a couple people that they are not good live so idk.

I really like this new album. It's different, moody, and just heavy enough. It won't tear your face off (although "Rats!" tries hard), but you wont go to sleep either. I actually liked their last record, but i wont deny that it wasn't very accessable, it needed a few listens before you started to appreciate it. this record is much better in that regard. ... I have seen the Deftones play live probably 9 times. i personally think that they put on a great show, but it's much better to catch them in a club setting than an arena, their "sound" is much better replicated in that sort of environment. Also, chino's level of drunkeness tends to dictate how good a show they put on, but i have never seen a "bad show", just some shows being better than others. I liked there "FMV" show, i thought they sounded pretty spot on ... No offense to any of the posters above, but if you are a "big fan" of the deftones, you would at least spell their name correctly, know that they are (most of the time) good live, and get whats going on in the new album. "Big" fans know that every album they come out with sounds a bit different than the last and they dig them for that. I am not saying that you have to feel the same way, unless you call yourself a big fan, in which case you do. If you dont like the new album or seeing them live, then in all honesty that makes you at best a bandwagon or casual fan, not that there is anything wrong with that. just don't overstate how much you love the deftones to better reference why you dont dig the new album, because more than likely you dont like it or are afraid to admit it is becuase this is their least "metal" record, and this being "Metal Underground", you feel inclined to only like their first or second record since those were the most metal albums they had. Through 5 albums and a longer lifespan than KoRn, they still manage to put out nothing but good to great albums. Korn hasn't had a record sound close to this good in at least 4 albums.

bassmaster how in the hell can you b**** about an album that you havent even listened to all the way through? you seriously sound like an ignorant piece of trash....anyway, the album is great (big fan)....definately a different style with still the umph of deftones revolutionary sound. I couldnt' help but notice that a couple songs resemble the soundings of team sleep, melody wise....but in all a very decent album through and through. There last album and this album are getting way to much flak from so-called huge deftones fans and I couldn't agree with Crenshawpunch'd more on that fact....also their live performances ARE killer and if you lucky enough to catch them at a smaller venue.....all I can say is that it got me moist ; )

the_antihippy yes I am a fan of Soilwork. I've got all their albums and I've seen them live twice, but I wish it was more than that. And honestly Rx Queen a lot of times I'll listen to an album and sometimes if it sucks enough I can't make it through the whole album. Ya know? I mean I bet a lot of people are like that, why listen to something that sucks? And something that you like, he may not like. I'm not arguing or anything I'm just looking at what he said from a different point of view.

"Pink Cellphone" is useless....I laughed at the ending though....But Christ, that was a waste.

Rest of the album is good....No "Around the Fur" or "White Pony" but good. Better than Self title I think.

As Crenshaw and Rx Queen pointed out, the last album gets alot of flak but honestly that album deserves it. It wasn't a bad record at all, just not up to par....It felt very unfinished, even the band(everyone but Cheng and Delgado anyway) is on record saying this.

This feels more like a group effort and Chino really came through on the vocals this time...."Rats!" lacks the punch of "Teething", "Damone", "Engine # 9", "Elite", "Girls Telephone Boys" etc....but I can deal with it.

Good album overall, a let down compared to others, but an improvement over the last one.

I'll post an official review in the review section in the semi-near future.

Once again theyve evolved without diminishing their characteristic sophisticated metal. Beautiful, balanced and definately one that culd stand as a classic. Better than 10 000 days from tool, although I'm not a fan of them anyway. saturday night wrist just reassures me that this is my favourite band. the good thing is they keep innovating and experimenting. Someone tell me, have they ditcheds the whole drop D thing cause this record doesnt sound that low. Best songs: Beware, Combat, and Mein :)
