ABC/Randy HolmesDeftones frontman Chino Moreno has clarified the remarks he made regarding turning down touring with Korn. Speaking to BBC Radio 1 over the weekend, Moreno says he’d “definitely do shows with [Korn].”
Moreno originally made the comments to Metal Hammer. Talking about the era of Deftones’ 1997 album Around the Fur, Moreno said he “can’t remember how many times I turned down Korn,” adding that he didn’t “want to be on the Family Values [tour] with [Korn] and Limp Bizkit.”
“[We] sort of made a conscious decision to, I guess, try to break away from what we were trying to be shoved into — not that we felt better than Korn and Limp Bizkit or all the other bands,” Moreno now tells BBC Radio 1. “But we just wanted really our own identity. One way of helping with that was to do shows on our own and away from what we were getting lumped into, so that’s all.”
Deftones will be touring the U.S. this summer alongside Rise Against.
